Program Notes

In Concerto d’Amore, a maestoso opening is followed by a quick and energetic movement that leads to a magnificent adagio. A motif from this adagio can be heard in a swinging movement, after which the piece comes to a close with the return of the adagio.

- Program Note from publisher


Concerto d'Amore exists of a combination of three different styles, namely baroque, pop and jazz. The stately introduction of the composition sounds like a baroque overture. Then follows an energetic part in pop style, that ends up in a characteristic adagio. A motive from this adagio is assimilated in a swinging part, after which the work finishes with the return of the adagio in a different appearance.
