Program Notes

The collaborative spirit shared between the wind ensemble community and living composers has created an amazing body of works that encompass all possible sonic combinations and permutations. This spirit provides the impetus for the Double Concerto: combining the dynamic, expressive sonorities of the 21st century wind ensemble with the versatility of the solo violin and violoncello. The two solo string instruments offers a broad, versatile range and color palette that can fully interact with the wind ensemble’s unique sonorities and expressive qualities. In its development, the Double Concerto creates a driving propulsive line that doesn’t let go.

The Double Concerto was commissioned by a consortium led by the University of Central Florida, Scott Lubaroff, band director.
