Title : Maximo Flugelman - Cello Concerto, I. Andantino Rapsodico
Description : Duration : 21:30

The Concerto was commissioned to mark the 50th. Anniversary of the Buenos Aires Philharmonic, the resident concert orchestra of the stately Teatro Colón. The Russian cellist Boris Pergamenshikow had been invited to perform in the Anniversary Season, and the suggestion of a work for cello and orchestra was enthusiastically welcomed.

The initial compositional goal was indeed a Concerto, but programming imperatives led to a shorter one-movement work, which true to it’s tempo marking [‘Andantino Rapsodico’] was presented as a ‘Rhapsody for Cello and Orchestra’. In this guise, the Flügelman Cello Rhapsody was declared a finalist by the Jury of the American Society of Composers’ Orchestral Composition Competition held in New York. The successful Buenos Aires Philharmonic première of the ‘Rhapsody’ took place with Boris Pergamenshikow as soloist, and with Jaap van Zweeden (Music Director of the Dallas Symphony) as guest conductor.

The originally envisaged two-movement Cello Concerto received a first performance in Paris with the acclaimed Gary Hoffman as soloist. The U.S. première of the Flügelman Cello Concerto was conducted by Lorin Maazel, with Inbal Segev as soloist. This Concerto is slated for a forthcoming performance with the Simon Bolívar Orchestra (William Molina as soloist).

In the first movement of the Concerto, Andantino Rapsodico, the cello introduces a cantabile theme (which constitutes the movement’s main motivic underpinning) against a backdrop of lightly textured orchestration. Development ensues with the soloist engaging a dialog with the orchestra’s families of instruments, leading to the fist of two short virtuosic cadenzas. After an orchestral tutti, lower strings and woodwinds bring-in a second, brooding theme, which rapidly ‘telescopes’ to a full orchestral climax. The cello then evokes this material in a contemplative vein, and in a rhapsodic mood swing, a brief “scherzando” provides a bridge to the second solo cadenza. This is followed by a recapitulation which the orchestra takes to a closing, uplifting fortissimo.

The opening of the second movement (marked ‘misterioso’) is given to the cello soloist. To this Theme I is ‘appended’ a joyful orchestral motif in triplets, which recurs several times. The movement’s architecture is freely aligned to that of ‘sonata-allegro’ form -- with an intermezzo bridging Themes I and II. The appearance of the second theme (II), which is lyrical and expansive, leads to a development section which concludes with a through-composed re-statement of Theme I and a recurrence of materials from the first movement. The cello soloist then introduces a brilliant finale which culminates in a lively coda “alla marcia”.
