Date of Defense 2005-11-02 Availability unrestricted AbstractThe Concerto for Piano and Orchestra was inspired by the works of Sergey Prokofiev, Bela Bartok, and Maurice Ravel, and explores some of the compositional devices of twentieth century music, including serialism, modality, polytonality, octatonic and hexatonic collections.
Written in a single movement, it combines the characteristics of the Sonata form and Rondo.
The piano part features a wide range of virtuoso techniques inherited from the styles of 19th and 20th century concerto. The orchestra is of a standard size, with an extended percussion section (six players), including a special role of eight timpani to be played by two performers. The two sets should be placed opposite to each other, on the corners of the stage to create an antiphonal effect, often interacting with the piano.
