Introduction/abstract

Grafenegg Academy Orchestra · Colin Currie

GRIME · STRAWINSKI · BARTÓK

Though modernists, Béla Bartók and Igor Stravinsky drew on the Baroque Concerto with its bold contest between instruments. They also placed a new focus on rhythm. Classics by the two composers frame Helen Grime’s sensational Percussion Concerto, premiered to great acclaim by Colin Currie in London in 2019, in this Grafenegg Academy Orchestra concert.
