Ellen Ballon (piano)
BBC Scottish Orchestra (Leader, J. Mouland Begbie )
Conductor, Ian Whyte
Heitor Villa-Lobos, the Brazilian composer, wrote his First Piano Concerto in 1945 for the Canadian pianist Ellen Ballon, shortly after meeting her in New York. There are four movements, in which the composer's characteristic ebullience and fondness for cross-rhythms are well displayed; the work, too, gives scope for brilliant pianism. The third movement is a passacagha, and towards the end of the rondo finale a version of the main theme of the first movement is heard again on the brats.
