INDIANA CONCERTO FOR PIANO AND ORCHESTRA

 

(32:00) Solo Piano, Full Orchestra (Double Winds). Rental Fee: Full Score, Set of Parts. Copyright 2007, Louis Wayne Ballard and Brent Michael Davids.

 

Indiana Concerto for Piano and Orchestra functions as a suite, where the first movement, written by the late Dr. Ballard, is followed by two movements composed in his honor by Brent Michael Davids. In 3 movements, the Work pays tribute to Native American composer Dr. Louis W. Ballard, and includes the final and uplifting work of Dr. Louis W. Ballard. The relationship of piano, orchestra and Dr. Ballard’s commemoration blend in a union of music and reflection. The final movement honors Dr. Ballard with a pianistic “stomp dance,” holding with the Cherokee’s traditional dance of reverence. Indiana Concerto for Piano and Orchestra was commissioned by the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra for piano virtuoso Emanuele Arciuli.

 

MOVEMENTS: 1. A Spirited Farewell (by Dr. Louis W. Ballard, Arr. by Brent Michael Davids), 2. Music Box Manitou (by Brent Michael Davids), 3. Stomp Dance For Louis (by Brent Michael Davids).
