The Double Concertante of David Johnstone is scored for solo Violin, solo Violoncello and Orchestra (strings, 2 oboes and 2 horns). Structurally the work is cast in a precise sonata form, with a healthy and sturdy development section; and the full cadenza forms a transition during the re-exposition coming between the second subject (which appears first as a great orchestral tutu) and the first subject group, before a brief coda. The technical demands of the writing for the soloists are probably on a par with that of the Brahms Double concerto. It is tonal, with certain influences from Prokofiev and as far back as Schumann. The music has been excellently edited in the ‘Sibelius 5’ programme, this being undertaken by Carlos Ariel Gracia Baez.
Dedicated to the Argentinian cello soloist Leo Viola
