William Duckworth has written a piano concerto
Exciting news from one of my favorite composers, William Duckworth. Pianist Bruce Brubaker persuaded Duckworth to compose a piano concerto, and Duckworth has finished the project.
Duckworth reports that "Big Piano" has seven movements and is 24 minutes long. No word yet on performances or a recording. More here.
Some of Duckworth's best pieces are for the piano (including, obviously, the "Time Curve Preludes," which have been recorded by Brubaker, Andy Lee and Neely Bruce) so I eagerly look forward to hearing the concerto.
