Concerto for piano and orchestra


  • Instrumentation: piano and orchestra
  • Edition: performance material

Description
My new piano concerto is in many short movements, each very different in timbre, acoustic, speed. The orchestra is split up into smaller groups that dialogue both with the piano and with each other. This creates the feeling of the piano travelling in a perpetually changing musical landscape, encountering new colours and climates at every turn. Steven Osborne’s repertoire is huge and highly varied, ranging all the way from Bach to Feldman, including free improvisation and jazz. I have tried to make use of the full range of his playing styles in this work. Julian Anderson
