Concerto for English Horn and Orchestra

Concerto for English Horn and Orchestra


  • Instrumentation: English horn and orchestra
  • Edition: performance material

 
Description
Concerto for English Horn and Orchestra is in three movements – ‘Fantasia’, ‘Aubade’, and ‘Hommage (à C-AD)’, the titles of which are suggestive of the mood and character of each movement. The third movement is an overt tribute and reference to Claude Debussy whose music has been a life-long influence on Bernard Rands’ musical aesthetic. Quite specifically, Debussy’s Jeux is a subtext to the music of this movement though no quotations from Debussy’s music are used. Rather, the spirit of Jeux is evoked – sometimes quite overtly and at other times rather mysteriously.
