Concerto for Piano and Orchestra (2013)

by Matthew C. Saunders


Concerto for Piano and Orchestra (2013) Over the past twenty years, I have composed four pieces in the concertante tradition (trombone and string orchestra, and one each for trombone, clarinet, and classical guitar with wind ensemble), with only one bearing the name “concerto” (and that piece belonging firmly to my “juvenilia”). After writing my Piano Sonata (2010), I felt prepared to tackle a genre that has intrigued me from the beginnings of my interest in classical music. The composer attempting to write a twenty-first century piano concerto has a plethora of examples and artistic models to serve as guide. I have adopted no particular piece or composer to this end, but the Romantic ideal of the pianist as individual against the society of the orchestra holds a great deal of importance to my own thinking about the genre. In my own worldview, however, there is not a stark divide between society and the individual—each is dependent on the other, often unwittingly, and frequently unwillingly, and therein lies the conflict inherent in the concerto as a form and, of course, in life generally. I have explored an explicitly-outlined programmatic version of this in my work Daytime Drama (2010) for clarinet and wind ensemble, but in this new piece, I allow the soloist to participate more as an individual who effects change rather than being affected by it. Although the work requires a pianist possessing maturity and technical ability, it is not merely a “display” piece and does not emphasize virtuoso technique. The two movements are to be played without pause. Matthew C. Saunders has taught music from kindergarten to college in styles from madrigal to mariachi, and strives to make beautiful music for and with captivating people. He has climbed mountains, saved someone’s life, and watched the moon rise over the prairie. He has loved, lost, and loved again; helped friends find salvation, and found it for himself as well; taught genius students, and learned from genius teachers. His dreams are to walk on Mars, hear a grand piano fall into an orchestra pit, make more people laugh than cry, and love his wife Becky passionately and forever. He plays trombone and is always getting better at playing piano, and in the course of a long, love-filled, productive life, he wants to compose the Great American Symphony, ride the rails, hike the trails, read all of the good books, finally watch The Godfather, and storm the castles in the air. He will never write unlistenable music, stop stargazing or lose money in Vegas. He doesn’t call his mother often enough, but he still tries to do a good turn daily. He is always up for a few hands of euchre or a good game of chess, likely winning the former and losing the latter. Dr. Saunders is music department chair at Lakeland Community College, where he directs the Lakeland Civic Orchestra. He previously held the position of Associate Professor of Music at Oklahoma Panhandle State University. He received degrees in music from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and The Ohio State University, where his teachers included Donald Harris, Jan Radzynski, Thomas Wells and Joseph Duchi. Dr. Saunders’ music has been performed across the country, and he has presented his research on rhythm at conferences of the College Music Society and the Society of Composers. He received the 2007 Ruth Friscoe Prize for composition and is the Oklahoma Music Teachers Association 2011 Commissioned Composer, and his oneminute orchestral piece What It’s Like will be included in Vox Novus’ first 60x60 Orchestra project. He has published articles in The Journal of Band Research, The Instrumentalist and Music Educators Journal. He is on the web at www.martiandances.com, but the physical Dr. Saunders lives in Willowick, Ohio with his wife Becky and their children Noah and Melia.
