Under-appreciated outside his native country for many years, he sprang into international view with his astonishing First Symphonya work of total maturity, originality and greatness. This symphony has now firmly entered the international repertoire in a way virtually unique for a contemporary work of its size and difficulty, receiving performances to date by close to eighty orchestras in seventeen countries.

John Corigliano | Etude Fantasy (for piano) ()

His earlier works, always performed with great success and frequency, are now established as fzntasy works of the repertoire. The following notes from the composer are a succinct guide for the listener: My Etude Fantasy is actually a set of studies combined into the episodic form and character of a fantasy.

This etude reaches a climax in which both the row and the thematic germ are heard together, and ends as the right hand enters, high on the keyboard, playing a pianissimo, slow chromatic descent which introduces the next etude—a study in legato playing. In this short second etude both hands slowly float downward as a constant crossing of contrapuntal lines provides melodic interest.

The sustaining of sound as well as the clarity of crossed voices is important here. The third etude follows—a fleet development on the simple pattern of a fifth fingers one and five contracting to a third fingers two and four.


In this croigliano there is much crossing of hands and during the process a melody emerges in the top voices. The fourth etude is a study of ornaments. Trills, grace notes, tremolos, glissandos and roulades ornament the opening material Etude 1 and then develop the first four notes of the third etude into a frenetically charged scherzando where the fanasy fingers of the left hand softly play a low cluster of notes like a distant drum as the thumb alternates with the right hand in rapid barbaric thrusts.

This leads to a restatement of the opening six-note row of the Fantasy in a highly ornamented fashion. After a sonorous climax comes the final etude, a study of melody. In it, the player is required to isolate the melodic line, projecting it through the filigree which surrounds coirgliano here the atmosphere is desolate and non-climactic, and the material is efude entirely on the melodic implication of the left-hand etude, with slight references to the second legato etude.

The work ends quietly with the opening motto heard in retrograde accompanying the mournful two-note ostinato.
