Strathclyde Concerto No. 2 (Miniature Score)

COMPOSER: Peter Maxwell Davies
PUBLISHER: Chester Music
PRODUCT TYPE: Score
INSTRUMENT GROUP: Orchestra
If Davies's Cello Concerto has already evoked comparisons with Elgar's, that is perhaps an indication not only of its wealth of solo melody (there is hardly a page where the cello is not singing, or if not that,thendancing), and of its predominantly slow tempos, but also of its musical stature.

Description
If Davies's Cello Concerto has already evoked comparisons with Elgar's, that is perhaps an indication not only of its wealth of solo melody (there is hardly a page where the cello is not singing, or if not that,thendancing), and of its predominantly slow tempos, but also of its musical stature. This second Strathclyde concerto is a virtuoso piece for the entire ensemble, which is used almost throughout as a clutch of soloists rather thanasa tutti block. The general tone is one of passionate but interior dialogue, especially in the opening Moderato and the slow movement; and though the finale is more extrovert, the work ends back in quietness andrumination.
