“Prelude and Scherzo for Piano and Orchestra for Gloria Cheng and Lang Lang” (Williams premiere, Albany SO, 2021/22)


Recommended Posts

Well, I'm right and you're wrong.

 

  • Percussive Planet is announced for Jun 26 2021, performed by Grubinger (source)
  • The Violin Concerto is announced for "next summer", performed by Mutter (source)
  • The Hollywood Bowl fanfare is announced for "the 100th anniversary of the Hollywood Bowl, to be conducted by Gustavo Dudamel" (source)
  • The Vienna Processional is announced for "Tanglewood, Summer 21" conducted by Dudamel (source)
  • Prelude is announced for "next season", performed by Cheng (source)

 

They are literally all completely identical to each other.

(Note: The “Prelude” is what will be premiered; the “Scherzo for Piano and Orchestra” is a previously-existing work.)  

Btw, Gloria confirmed me that the piece is going to be recorded by the Albany Symphony next year.

In the case of the Prelude, we have a program confirmed by the performing artist. In Gloria I trust.

 

But it hasn't been published. And you don't know if he's finished composing it yet. If he hasn't, there's no 100% guarantee that he'll ever finish it. Anyway, no recording has been announced, so it doesn't belong in a discography.

Yup.  All 5 of these pieces might be performed to an audience one day, or might not.  All 5 of them might get recorded and released on an album or single one day, or might not.

 

If the website is about cataloging his recordings, and not being a crystal ball, then none of them should be listed yet.  

 

But if you're going to list 1, list all 5, because they'll all the same thing.

Really cool! The Maestro has certainly been keeping busy. I love it!

I think the "Scherzo" is a heavy and aggressive piece, unlike many of Williams' other concert works, which, as we know, have a tendency to focus on the dreamy quality of nature.  I really enjoy it but would like to hear it a few beats-per-minute faster.  

 

The "Prelude" should be a fantastic addition.

Lucky guy! Barcelo is a fine composer in his own right. Love his Rozsa-esque score for COLISEUM and his heartwarming score for THE LITTLE WIZARD.

In the Barcelona concert there will be a suite from The Little Wizard and he willi premiere a piece he has written as an homage to Williams. It looks like it's going be a great concert. Plus the Palau de la musica catalana is gorgeous.
