Bohuslav Martinu: Concerto No.2 For Cello And Orchestra: Cello

Instrumental Work | Sheet Music & Songbooks
Instrumentation Cello and Piano
Composer Bohuslav Martinu
Publisher Associated Music Publishers
Series String
This is one of the best Cello concertos of the twentieth century, and readily communicates the Bohuslav Martinu strong feelings for his homeland. Written over the Christmas and New year period of 1944-45 in New York, it is full of his reactions to that last dramatic winter of the war and the desire to go home.

It is an expansive work, over 35 minutes in length, in the standard three movements. Typically for Martinu, the first movement is in Moderato tempo. The opening gesture is highly characteristic: A pulsing rhythm establishes itself in the orchestra and a striving, rising theme with a contradictory rhythm contends with it. The second movement, Andante poco moderato, has a general pulse that is not much slower than that of the first. It is episodic, with a faster central section and then a truly magical and heartfelt treatment of the main subject, in which Martinu expresses his longing for home. The final movement, Allegro, is a driving, energetic conclusion with a solo cadenza that breaks the ongoing rhythm and provides a touching moment of contemplation before the joyous conclusion. This edition contains a Piano reduction of the Orchestral part for rehearsal purposes.
