Work Title


Muhly's Concerto presents a smorgasbord of slick ideas, enticingly presented ... The first movement has a bright, angular lyricism ... The soloist's toccatasoon melts into a sheerly vocalise-like movement, bathed in Barberesque radiance. Scurrying scales gradually move out of the halo to be pitted against persistent woodwind and menacing brass. The finale has a mischievous Minimalist glitter reminiscent of early Adams, a sassy syncopated solo line etched against a high stream of tingling repeated figures, powered by punchy brass. Muhly creates an exciting sonic theatre full of unpredictable explosions and high-wire filigree, ending with a dark twist.
