Description:
This Concerto is in every aspect a contemporary composition but has been inspired by diverse musical styles and composers, among others J.S. Bach and Olivier Messiaen. The duration of the Concerto is almost 9 minutes and it consists of two parts of almost equal length.
Part 1 is predominantly slow. A melodious introduction is followed by a temporary upswing which begins as a fugue and turns into a scherzando. The order is restored by the stately theme of a passacaglia, which in five variations builds up to a climax and ends in tranquility. Part 2 is predominantly fast. The fierce opening forms a strong contrast with the preceding part. It also introduces the solistic snare drum, which pushes the piece into an abrupt downfall.
After a gloomy andante the tempo is gradually increased towards the powerful and virtuoso cadenza. The Concerto is concluded by a reprise and thundering coda.
