(Leader, Alfred Barker )
Conductor, T. H. MORRISON STEPHEN WEARING (pianoforte)
The Pianoforte Concertos of Listz, and in particular No. 1, in E flat, have long been popular alike with artists and with audiences, that it is a little difficult to believe that they were once received with suspicion and even with dislike. The Concerto begins in a quick tempo, but with a majestic bigness, and the whole orchestra plays the first main tune. Then the solo instrument has a section in calmer mood, and the strings play the second chief tune, slower than the first. The pianist repeats this after the orchestra, and a third tune follows, which is played first by flute and afterwards by clarinet. This tune re-appears in the last movement. The second movement follows without a pause ; the chief tune, heralded by the triangle, is set forth by the strings of the orchestra. It is a vivacious movement with an air of real gaiety. Still without a break, the last movement appears, opening with the slow melody which has been heard already. The movement has something of a martial air, animated and energetic. The flute tune from the first movement makes its appearance, too, along with echoes of the previous parts of the work, forming the foundation for a brilliant finish.
