It is a highly popular genre, used to good effect by Haydn, Mozart, and numerous other composers.

By , when Beethoven began the Triple Concerto, he had already completed several piano trios, as well as sonatas for violin and piano, and sonatas for cello and piano. He had learned to balance the different timbres of the three solo instruments, and now set himself the task of combining those timbres with a full orchestra. The work offers much dramatic expression for soloists and orchestra alike.

Although there are passages of lyric beauty, the more frequent mood is of an assertive driving spirit. However, the piano part is not, in fact, a particularly easy one , and it has always seemed unlikely that the young nobleman would have been able to wrap his fingers around it. If the concerto was in a publishable condition four years before the two men became acquainted, any intention that Rudolf might play the piece could only have been an afterthought. Since Schindler has been shown in other instances to possess a somewhat creative memory, and since no documentary evidence, such as a program from the premiere, has survived, the story must be regarded as an interesting possibility that cannot be proven.

Suite from Porgy and Bess — arranged by Andrew Litton. The piece is scored for solo vocalists, SATB chorus, and orchestra. Duration is 1 hour 5 minutes. This is the first performance by the Colorado Symphony. Imagine being at the Alvin Theater in New York City, October 10, , swimming through the crowd to find your orchestra seat. And what a crowd: George Gershwin bridged the gap between art and commercialism, between Tin Pan Alley, Broadway and the concert hall. The brief, wildly energetic and syncopated overture with winds, strings, percussion — and a very prominent xylophone — crashes through the silence, the curtain rises….

In March in Charleston, South Carolina, a crippled, black American named Goatcart Sammy attempted to shoot Maggie Barnes and was pursued by police who, with their Cadillacs , not surprisingly overtook the goat-cart and put him in jail. This story caught the eye of an insurance policy writer Dubose Heyward who, more interested in creative writing, put it into a best-selling novel called Porgy. This caught the fancy of George Gershwin who, then touring with his music Oh, Kay!

Having seen the theatrical possibilities, Heyward and his wife Dorothy were already dramatizing the book for Broadway. The Theater Guild production was a hit, and Porgy was hot property.

Al Jolson pursued the rights to the work in order to produce a musical treatment by talents no less than Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II in which he would play the lead in blackface. Meanwhile, the famous songwriter continued to rise as a historical figure — the man who brought jazz into the concert hall with works such as Rhapsody in Blue, Concerto in F, and a tone poem An American in Paris.

The Gershwin brothers and Heyward worked intensely for twenty months. George spent five weeks during the summer of on the islands off Charleston, studying a community of Gullah Negroes whose music exemplified the rhythmic complexities and spiritual nature for which they were searching. Being the impresarios as well as the creators of Porgy and Bess, the brothers secured their all-black cast.

The production team, also hand-picked, was stellar: Rouben Mamoulian , whose direction of the play version had given the production its singular style, came from Hollywood to direct the opera; Alexander Smallens conducted the orchestra, Alexander Steinert coached the singers, and Eva Jessye lead the choir. Once rehearsals started, Gershwin was fixated. His showmanship was so keen that no matter how well he loved a musical passage or an aria … he would cut it out without hesitation if that improved the performance as a whole. Outside the theater, limos and cabs take some four hundred invitees uptown for a party at a huge penthouse apartment on Madison Avenue.

Eventually, after all sixty members of the cast arrive, Gershwin takes over the piano, reprising much of the opera. Even though you have to work in the morning, you wait for the reviews with the rest at the party of the year, promising to last until seven in the morning.
