What is this piano concerto...
on: July 13, 2004, 05:08:50 AM
I haven't figured out what the concerto is or by whom.
But here's what I know:
Starts quiet and simple with clarinets in F major, then the piano comes in with a forte run up the keys, then another fast scale down, completing in A minor.  

The middle lyrical section's melody is as such:
C    F E(mordent'ed) C E D(mordent'ed) Bb D C

The ending has the piano hitting an A and the orchestra echoing it several times.

Can you help me?
A modern house without a flush toilet... uncanny.

This is the final movement of Griegs piano concerto.  I am 100% sure!  I love this piece SO much!!!!! It is great you discovered it.  Have fun - many people play it as a first concerto.  It is absolutely astonishing when played well.

it is a very nice concerto, but y people play it as a first concerto is quite beyond me as it does not sound particularly easy as compared to some classical and baroque era concertos
rach on!
