David Finko

Quick Overview

The composer?s intentions with this piece were to create a dramatic work for a virtuoso pianist that would reflect deep and thrilling images of the Bible, and to make a significant contribution to the list of well-known Russian piano concertos. "Moses" is in a single movement, built on several contrasting, though related themes. The sections evoke such images as Moses himself; his mission; the clamorous, turbulent crowd; the flashing night sky; and the long journey in the desert.
