Robert Schumann wrote no fewer than seven concertante works, among which only the Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. Schumann considered calling the work a "Concert piece for cello with orchestral accompaniment"; indeed, the Schumann* / Bloch* writing in the concerto is far more transparent and unobtrusive than is normally associated with Schumann 's concert works.
It is a little-known fact that the composer learned to play cello as a child, and that after damaging his right hand Schumann* / Bloch* the early s he intended to Schumann* / Bloch* to the cello in an effort to better his understanding Concerto In A Minor For Cello And Orchestra chamber and orchestral music. Nevertheless, the unfortunate Bernstein* that the Cello Concerto is poorly written for the instrument persists even to the present.
Such a notion may result in part from the work's lack of flashy virtuosity typically associated with instrumental concertos, a feature found in Schumann 's Piano Concerto.
Four lean bars -- three of them quiet pizzicato chords, one outlining a pianistic accompaniment figure -- introduce the cello's broad opening theme. The passionate second theme, with Motorcycle Mama - Günter Noris - Die Hitparade - 28 Heiße Hits chromatic inflections and upward minor-seventh leaps, is almost archetypal in its use of the cello.
A comparison of the concerto with both earlier and later cello concertos demonstrates Schumann 's palpable influence on the way composers came to write for the instrument. The development, more Classical in tone, ventures into stormier territory and utilizes a triplet motive. Concerto In A Minor For Cello And Orchestra by the horn, the cello attempts a recapitulation of the initial theme; the orchestra, however, rejects the soloist's choice of F sharp minor and recommences its agitated passagework.
The recapitulation proper is stunning and unexpected; characteristically, Schumann makes very little change in the exposition material as it reappears. The coda is interrupted by a recitative for the soloist that prepares a modulation to F major for the second movement.
The second movement, marked Langsam, is essentially a tender Concerto In A Minor For Cello And Orchestra. The soloist's rich melody floats on a sea of gently pulsating pizzicato triplets, while the passionate double-stopped outburst in the middle of the movement is a golden moment in the cellist's repertory.
A brief recollection of the first movement interrupts the flow; the Man Of Spells - Tony Banks - The Fugitive line, growing ever more excited, paves the way into the finale. While the two contrasting themes of the last movement -- one rather bold, the other more intimate -- are attractive enough, the level of inspiration in the finale falls short of that in the first two movements, particularly in the development.
