Étude de concert


Hough’s Étude de Concert is, again in his own words, ‘a pastiche of the Slavic piano étude. In ABA form its A sections, made up of three themes, are reduced to half tempo to form the B section. During the reprise of section A all three themes are combined briefly before a coda transforms the main theme into a whirlwind tarantella’.

from notes by Bryce Morrison © 1999

L’Étude de concert de Hough est, pour reprendre les termes du compositeur, «un pastiche de forme traditionnelle, sa structure ABA incluant trois thèmes réduits à la moitié du tempo pour former la section B. Durant la reprise de la section A, les trois thèmes sont combinés brièvement avant qu’une coda ne transforme le thème principal en une tarentelle éclair».

Houghs eigene Étude de Concert ist seinen Worten zufolge ‘ein Pasticcio in gewohnter Form, dessen A-B-A-Struktur mit drei Themen im Abschnitt B auf halbes Tempo reduziert ist. Während der Reprise des Abschnitts A werden kurz alle drei Themen miteinander kombiniert, bevor eine Coda das Hauptthema in eine turbulente Tarantella ummünzt’.
