Programme Note
André Previn Concerto for Orchestra (2016)
Note:Opening in a pastoral style, the concerto’s opening movement plays with the establishment and development of motifs in quickly altering meters and rhythms. It by no means an academic exercise, but typically for Previn, it is emotionally engaging, returning to pastoral ideas throughout the movement. The second movement, melodic and generally quiet, is called “Duets” and comprises of actual duets as well as duets between sections. The somber and melodically sentimental third movement, ‘Remember’ leads into the Finale, packed with several exciting gear shifts: a short brass statement; into a section that resembles a Bachian concerto grosso in style, texture and sound, followed by a slow introspective section towards the end and a brisk climax to finish.
