Details

When asked to compose this work, I asked myself what the meaning of “concerto” is in the 21st century.
 
The modern concerto had its roots in the Baroque period, and further developed in form in the Classical period, with the development of sonata form. Further expansion of the form developed in the Romantic period, leaving us in the 20th century with more freedom. So for me, a concerto simply means a work for solo instrument (or instruments) with accompaniment of orchestra or band.
 
With this in mind, I felt free to follow my muse in writing a four movement work (most concertos are in three movements). Although the solo violin is spotlighted, there is a good deal of give and take between the violin and the orchestra. -Henry Mollicone, October, 2014
