Product Description:

The Concerto's beginning movement is a fantasia in the Classical sense, in which the careful juxtaposing of various types of music is the paramount concern. The solemn 5/4 second movement is in memory of the great pianist Paul Jacobs, a close friend who died in 1982. The Fantasia Concertante was requested by James Levine as a commission from the Salzburg Mozarteum, to be given its first performance by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra at a concert which took place at the Salzburg Festspielhaus on the 26th of January 1986, as part of the Mozart Festival of the same year. An idea, to be symphonic, must for me have an interesting formal argument to sustain it, and I found the material that generated itself for the Fifth Symphony had a two-edged ironic feel, at once sardonic and grieving, like certain kinds of satire. This, together with the duality of two contrasted poles of tonality (tonally dynamic music set against music that is more ambivalent in its allegiance to a home key), gave the armature for the work. William Bolcom
