The resulting Concerto for Orchestra took nearly four years to complete. While much of the material used is folk orientated, no attempt was made to reproduce folk idioms.
Lutoslaswki felt free to treat his basic ideas in a manner that did not put any curb on his creativity. Free use is made of all twelve notes, while sometimes the part writing suggests several simultaneous tonal planes.
The Concerto departs from convention in the matter of architecture, for no movement approximates, even remotely, to sonata form. Whereas this first paragraph stems form a single idea that is handed over from one group of instruments to another, the texture gradually becoming more and more complex, the larger central panel is less limited in its material. The final section provides a much condensed, quiet reprise of the opening one, the pedal F sharp now sounding in the high register.
The second movement is also in tripartite form and it displays a similar contrast between its outer sections based on the same material. The very condensed reprise of the first part finally peters out on divided double basses and drums of different sizes. Concerto for Orchestra: 1. Intrada: Allegro Maestoso. Concerto for Orchestra: 2. Capriccio notturno e Arioso: Vivace - Stesso movi- mento. Concerto for Orchestra: 3.
Witold Lutoslawski: Concerto For Orchestra (Study Score)
The composer moulds them into a different reality, lending them new harmony, adding atonal counterpoints, turning them into neo-baroque forms. The score calls for a large orchestra consisting of three flutes two doubling piccolo , three oboes one doubling cor anglais , three clarinets one doubling bass clarinet , three bassoons one doubling contrabassoon , four horns , four trumpets , four trombones , tuba , timpani , snare , tenor and bass drum , cymbals , tambourine , tam-tam , xylophone , bells , celesta , two harps , piano and strings. The Corale's second appearance produces a solemn finale for the monumental construction, the material for which is borrowed from a nineteenth-century collection compiled by the Polish ethnologist Oskar Kolberg. The concerto finishes with a dramatic flourish and climax from the whole orchestra. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
