Martin Butler

Concertino for Piano and Chamber Orchestra

Conductor's score and parts on hire

Forces or Category: Piano & chamber orchestra

Orchestration: pn solo, 2 fl (II+picc), 2 cl (II+bcl), 2 hn, 2 perc (tamb, sus cym, timb, toy drum, crash cym, tom, vib, glock, temp blk, BD, tri, marac, cas, tbells, whip, w blk), str

The three movements are designed to contrast and complement one another. The first, Waltzes and Marches, constantly alternates these two dance genres, sometimes in surprising ways, sometimes so that their differences become indistinct. The second movement, Nocturne, suggests the gentle movement and reflected light of a child's mobile. The last movement is a frenetic (although quite light-textured) Toccata in which the piano plays rapid figuration between the hands almost continuously throughout, ending with a quiet little chorale followed by a last upward flourish and a bang.
