Andrew Rudin

Overture / Rondo

for two pianos

Overture/Rondo is a transcription and rearrangement of the third and final movement of my Concerto for Piano and Small Orchestra. The original soloist’s role has now been re-distributed, alternating between the two pianists, and other such adjustments have been made to more equitably divide the music. In the Concerto, there is a considerably longer cadenza near the conclusion. The form of the work is a rondo, with the opening theme recurring twice, slightly varied each time. I decided to include the “Overture” designation because in this transcription, it was intended at its first performance to open the concert in a festive fashion.
