    Default The Concertino Game (Selection Thread)

    kyjo recommended a game of concertino works, and I think it's time to move forward. As most of you know, a concertino is a "little" concerto, and I can't deny that they don't get much exposure. I also have to admit that I know very few of them, so this will be an eye-opener for me.

    Selection Rules:

    1. You may make 1 or 2 selections on a daily basis.
    2. The 2 selections must be from different composers.
    3. Your selections are not subject to the seconding from others - you pick a valid entry, it's in the game.

    My 2 selections for today:

    Larsson, Lars-Erik - Concertino for Horn, op. 45/5
    Weber - Concertino for Clarinet in E flat major, op. 26

    Note: I am allowing the above because it's for violin and orchestral and is essentially a small concerto. If the work was for violin and piano (or voice and piano), it would be rejected. The key here is "small concerto".

    Debussy - Fantaisie for piano and orchestra
    Fauré - Ballade for piano and orchestra

    I'm not sure if they'll be accepted but it seems to me they're on the same category as Dvorak's Romance

    This game is not working out as I had planned, so it's best to cancel it early in the process.

    Game Cancelled

    Good call. I intend to run a game soon for all concertante works that are not concert(in)o's or symphonies, so that will give the romances, fantaisies, etc a game of its own.
