Menotti's Triplo Concerto à Tre is a three-movement work in which nine soloists are divided into three concertino groups. The instruments are ingeniously manipulated to keep the work constantly shifting between chamber and orchestral textures. This is a splendid piece with a playful, thoroughly neo-Classical opening Allegro. The centerpiece of the work is a beautiful slow movement based on a lovely, haunting melody that, once heard, refuses to leave your head. This is one of Menotti's most satisfying scores.
Richard Burke, Fanfare,1/1/0001
