Score and performance of Brian Inglis’ Concerto (Homage to Alkan) (Feb 2016)

Society member and composer Brian Inglis’ Concerto for Piano Solo (Homage to Alkan) – completed for Alkan’s bicentenary in 2013 – has been published by Composers Edition and is available here. A performance by Gabriel Keen can be heard here.

Eagle-eared members may note brief quotations at the outset from Op39 Symphony (first movement coda) and Scherzo Diabolico (trio); more subtle allusions to Alkanian tropes are also apparent.
