The Concerto, commissioned by the Yamaha Foundation, was composed in 1996 and ’97 and was given its first performance on April 9 of the latter year in Munich, with the composer as soloist and Jean-Pierre Faber conducting Munich Symphony Orchestra. I intended to span the broadest possible spectrum of elements, not only in relation to the construction of the work, but in relation to the character of the instruments. I wanted unite the quintessence of Nature and archaic elements (rhythm as the primal origin of all music, as the force that gives birth to music) with theatrical qualities and a new articulation of tonality with the “classical” tonal language of this century to produce a music that DOES communicate with the listener. Only such a unity of factors can represent the free expansion of today’s music beyond old notions of avant-gardisme. This concerto allots the soloist a single very familiar instrument and includes a large percussion complement in the orchestra itself. This is a symbolic gesture, that represent a kind of ritual in which an individual is accepted into a community after a ritual of initiation.
