Concert Fantasia (Tchaikovsky)
The Concert Fantasia in G, Op. 56, for piano and orchestra, was written by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky between June and October 1884. It was premiered in Moscow on 6 March 1885, with Sergei Taneyev as soloist and Max Erdmannsdörfer conducting. The Concert Fantasia received many performances in the first 20 years of its existence. It then disappeared from the repertoire and lay virtually unperformed for many years, but it has undergone a recent revival.
Famous quotes containing the word concert:
“Proportion ... You cant help thinking about it in these London streets, where it doesnt exist.... Its like listening to a symphony of cats to walk along them. Senseless discords and a horrible disorder all the way.... A concert of Brobdingnagian cats. Order has been turned into a disgusting chaos. We need no barbarians from outside; theyre on the premises, all the time.”
—Aldous Huxley (18941963)
