Concerto for Violin and Sinfonietta
Paul Osterfield - Paul West Osterfield
Concerto for Violin and Sinfonietta displays musical passion, lyricism, and technical agility in an exciting and intense piece. The work is in three movements. The first movement continually develops from the opening solo. The second movement is a lyrical passacaglia, beginning with the ostinato in the contrabass and bassoon. The final movement is a five-part rondo, ending with a flurry of technical virtuosity. Scored for 1-1-1-1, 1-1-1-0, pc, pno, solo-violin, strings (from 11111 to 55331).
