57-905 Concerto: Virtuosity and Contrast

Related URLs:

The Concerto, one of the most popular forms of music, is also a dramatic form, a drama of contrast between the strength of one body of sound and another (volume), between one type of sound and another (tonal distinction), between the individual and the masses, and finally, between the Solo virtuoso and the less gifted Tutti players. The goal of this course is to examine the greatest concerti written for all instruments; from Vivaldis Concerto for Two Mandolins to John Adamss Grand Pianola Music, and much more, while dealing with the social and personal histories of unforgettable virtuosi and the concerti that became their Battle Horses. The program analyzes great concerti performed by the worlds greatest soloists and orchestras.
