This full work of some 13-14 minutes duration mixes the baroque ideals of the Concerto Grosso with a small concertino group (in this case 5 musicians) dialoguing with the larger orchestral forces (‘ripieno’) with a full romantic era writing – such as the Elgar Introduction and Allegro for String Quartet and String orchestra which Johnstone feels could be a good ‘sister’ work to be programmed together. It is not excessively difficult and could be a rewarding experience for all string players (and pianists!).
This musical creation was originally written for: in memory of the composer’s father John Eric Johnstone
