Bach, J.-Concerto for Steel Pan and Orchestra (solo part ONLY)-steel dr./orch - Product Information

Jan Bach's Concerto for Steelpan and Orchestra was written for Liam Teague in 1994. Its production was supported by the financial assistance of the Woodstock Chimes foundation, Garry and Diane Kvistad, presidents.

The work is in two main sections connected by an extended solo cadenza. The first movement's title, Reflections, is not only a description of its musical content, style, and tempo, but carries an additional meaning: in Europe, the word reflection is a synonym for pealing, the action of striking a bell. In this context, the movement's title refers to the bell-like sound of the pan; the climax of the movement is intended to be reminiscent of the "change-ringing" of bells popular as a seasonal sport in English church steeples. The second movement, Toccata (touch piece), also carries a double meaning. It is not only an opportunity for the soloist to display his machine-like speed, accuracy, and virtuosity as well as his phenomenal dynamic control; it is also a connection with that Baroque past with which then name of the composer - - despite all efforts to the contrary - - has been eternally associated.
