...like a Maelstrom (double concerto
for piano, trumpet, and small orchestra) takes its title
from the opening lines of a poem by Emily Dickinson, and is - as
the title suggests - energetic and turbulent, providing a
thorough workout for both soloists.
It was premiered in 2015 by Arcko Symphonic Ensemble under Timothy Phillips, featuring Peter Dumsday and Bruno Siketa. It is a work that is especially challenging for the soloists, presenting difficulties that both Peter and Bruno confronted and mastered with astonishing stamina and skill.
Instrumentation: Piano, trumpet in C, percussion (2 players), strings (min. 4-4-2-2-2 but 6-6-4-3-2 or more preferred).
Duration: 26 min.
Contents note: In one continuous movement.
