Concerto for Viola and Orchestra

Also  known as Concerto for Viola. This composition was written for the composer’s son, viola player Artur Paciorkiewicz. It is a virtuoso cheerful three movement piece. The first movement – Allegro deciso – is based on two clearly contrasting theme groups. The second one has a regular three-part form. The third part has a free rondo form with A-B-A-C-A structure with a lively and cheerful character. The piece ends with the bravado theme A. Orchestra is as important as viola, carries out dialogue, confronts and complements the solo instrument.
