Parabola concertante by Rodion Shchedrin (1932-). For cello, string orchestra and timpani. This edition: ED 9407. Orchestra Music. Grade 5. Piano reduction with solo part. Composed 2001. 36 pages. Duration 15 minutes. Published by Schott Music (SD.49008410). ISBN 9790001131384. Bei einem Komponisten, der mit seinen Werken in nahezu allen musikalischen Gattungen vertreten ist, ist es nicht erstaunlich, dass diese Vielseitigkeit seines Schaffens auch zu ungewohnlichen Besetzungen fuhrt, wie z. B. in "Music from afar" fur 2 Bassblockfloten, oder in "Balalaika" fur eine Solo-Violine, die durchweg pizzicato spielt. Mit dieser Vorliebe setzt Shchedrin in "Parabola concertante" zum begleitenden Streichorchester Pauken ein, die dem in seinem Gesamtgestus verhaltenen, besinnlichen Stuck einen charakteristischen Kontrapunkt geben. Geschrieben ist das Stuck fur den Altmeister des Cellospiels Mstislav Rostropovitch, der auch das Werk beim Internationalen Cello-Festival Kronberg uraufgefuhrt hat.
