    He appears here as pianist / conductor with the Ulster Orchestra. It is universally agreed that it was Mozart who shaped the lines of the modern concerto. The rhapsodic Adagio, with its birdcalls and wistful character, could be a musical portrait of Vysoká, the composer’s beloved summer home. A subset of this type comprises American melodramas dealing with the experience of African-Americans under slavery and its aftermath in the South.

    Brahms confia à Clara Schumann que le doux mouvement lent hymnique était un «tendre portrait» d’elle. The movement is broadly conceived and contains striking moments of contrapuntal invention and a rapid closing section that transforms the two main themes. Beethoven was born on December 16th, 1770 in Bonn (now called Cologne, Germany) to parents of Belgian descent. From around 1800 such pieces were often called Konzertstück or Phantasie by German composers.

    His professional commitments were never long-term, but they did include stints as Capellmeister to the Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (1855-58) and conductor at the Paris Opéra (1867-70). This week, we’ll listen to music from Italy and Germany, pieces that really encapsulate the sounds of these two countries. Mendelssohn would seek to collaborate on his last orchestral work with David, revising it painstakingly until its premiere in Leipzig in 1845.

    The difficulty for Mozart with the typical rondo structure is that it is naturally strophic; i.e., the structure is divided into a series of highly differentiated and distinct sections. In the last minute, a rocketing fast tempo takes over, the festival mood returns, and the music conjures itself away, with a Mephistophelean bang. What is a unit of two or more pitches that sound at the same time?

    The rollicking final movement on Vivaldi’s concerto clocks in at just under one minute from start to finish, with the whole piece, all three movements, adding up to less than four minutes. Most concertos go in 3 movements, with the tempo arranged as Fast-Slow-Fast, respectively. It’s no secret that Bach, in turn, had a great influence on Brahms. After a passage where the two main themes are combined, a new military style theme is introduced by the horns and trumpets.

    Not even at the age of maturity yet, Beethoven was the assistant organist... All the recordings we'll hear today were taken from a recital last year by mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnson Cano and pianist Christopher Cano. (And to answer the question you're probably all asking yourselves right now, yes, the two are husband and wife.) We'll begin with the de Falla set, a delightful and varied collection of Spanish folksongs that is quite possibly the single most popular piece of classical Spanish vocal repertoire out there.

    The Concert Overture by the then twenty-three-year-old Karol Szymanowski that received its first performance in Warsaw’s Philharmonic Hall on 6 February 1906 marked a clear, if by no means unproblematic, departure in this regard. The first three of the five piano concertos surviving in completed form come from Beethoven's early period (prior to 1802-3) and clearly relate to his appearances as a virtuoso performer At the time of their publication it was still the tradition for soloists to improvise their cadenzas and that is how these were first published.

    Yet despite widespread recognition of their importance, they still present many interpretive problems. Mozart 's concerti for 2 pianos and 3 pianos, the Sinfonia concertante for violin and viola, and his concerto for flute and harp. Though Grieg was not happy in Leipzig, he became immersed in the very lively musical culture that mid-19th-century Germany offered. A vigorous, skipping Ukranian dance on the piano invites a stomping orchestral response, leaving a dizzy soloist to be gently stabilised by the strings' graceful counter-subject.

    All three types of concerto share a common compositional structure, style, and execution. Muted strings open the B major Quasi adagio, before a rhapsodic passage for the solo piano and elements of quasi-recitative. He was a genius in all genres, producing masterpiece symphonies, especially his 3rd, nicknamed “the Rhenish,” for its triumphantly Bavarian quality, his chamber music, especially his Piano Quintet, a monument in the history of music, and his Piano Concerto in a minor, perhaps the finest ever written.

    However, from its very beginning, the first movement of K. 271 transcends this archetype in that both soloist and orchestra seek aggressively to assert themselves; that is, the first movement under consideration here is marked by particularly contentious interaction between the two concerto textures. Indeed, Vivaldi's instrumental works lay the foundation for the development of the concerto into the Classical Period. What genre of music do these terms describe?
