Program Notes

1960 saw the first performance of Lendvay's Concertino for Piano Solo, Winds, Percussion and Harp, an outstanding contribution to the Hungarian concerto literature of the mid-twentieth century. In this work, Lendvay was powerfully influenced by three of Hungary’s greatest composers, Béla Bartók, Zoltán Kodály and Franz Liszt. A touch of nineteenth century romanticism reminiscent of Franz Liszt is clearly heard in the slow second movement. Lendvay’s fondness for repeated notes and passages based on alternating patterns producing strong rhythmic forces in the first and third movements reminds the listener of Bartók’s numerous works for piano. Although Lendvay’s music is steeped in the musical developments of the twentieth century, it is deeply inspired and is accessible to today’s audiences.
