What Money Can Buy

A new piano concerto for one thing.

Lowell Liebermann's Piano Concerto No. 3 gets its debut this week. Thanks to a long haul to scrape up the money for it. Read about it here.

Most curious graf
"I hate to use the word 'accessible,' " Biegel said, "but the concerto is melodic and something you can grasp immediately. You can walk out of the hall singing the tunes, and you don't get that out of a lot of new music."

Must be a selling point.

Hi I have just discovered your blog, and am off to explore! I have always thought that was the reason that rondos were so popular for final movements - because the audience walks out with a cheerful tune in their head :)
