Chodos' Concertino for Two Pianos & Orchestra - La Jolla Symphony & Chorus

2/26/2018; 13 minutes

"Like a semi-formal family dinner, this piece offers an environment for free interaction that is both structurally rigid & weirdly volatile. In this piece, the three principal actors - 2 solo pianos & a symphony orchestra - behave like relatives. We get along, we shout over each other, we stand at a respectful distance, and we shock each other into bemused & resentful silence. This is a work that calls for trust, sympathy & humor; I couldn't have written it unless I felt for the people involved a musical kinship verging on the familial."
- Composer/Pianist Asher Tobin Chodos Recorded on 11/05/2017.
