Quick Overview

Liebermann's offering to the genre of concerti for orchestra was written for and premiered by the Toledo Symphony in 2002. "Listening to the work develop, one often felt as if some spectacular clash of wills was unfolding across the stage. Melodies - sometimes long, more often shattered into agitated fragments - broke across each other in clashing rhythms that reminded this listener of the Greek Furies." --Steven Cornelius, The Toledo Blade "[T]his is an expertly crafted virtuoso essay that gives everyone a moment to shine at some point, and it’s a tribute to Liebermann’s technique that even the licks for the odder instruments make sense in their context." -- David Hurwitz, The Concerto for Orchestra is also included in an all-Liebermann recording by BBC Symphony Orchestra, Grant Llewellyn, conducting, on the Albany label.
