Quick Overview

The original orchestration featured an interplay between the supporting clarinet, horn, and strings, which Dorff felt was lost in his first piano reduction of the Concerto. To restore that aspect of the piece, he has fashioned this chamber ensemble version, which uses the piano in lieu of strings only. Dorff explains, "The result yields a chamber work that allows the contrabassoonist an opportunity to perform the work on formal and informal concert series, enjoys the interaction of an ensemble, is musically complete, and has a practical piano part."
