Repertoire Note

Britten’s first work for piano and orchestra was written for himself to play at a Promenade Concert in 1938. In 1945 the original slow movement, ‘Recitative and Aria’, was replaced with a newly composed ‘Impromptu’ (though the original version may be performed on application to Boosey & Hawkes). A true ‘bravura’ work, the Piano Concerto has been championed in recent years by internationally renowned pianists.
