About the work

A miniature concerto for cello soloist with flexible ensemble, piano and percussion. Essentially Concertino is in Rondo form with the main theme presented by the cello with the other instruments following in rhythmically varied imitations (although the percussion is omitted from the first two statements). Between the 3 statements of the theme are 2 interludes which are faster and livelier in character and thematically loosely derived from the main theme. A climax builds up at the end of the 2nd interlude, after which the return of the main theme is stated fortissimo, then fading away to a quiet conclusion.
