Notes & Reviews:

The Russian-born composer Vernon Duke (Vladimir Dukelsky) produced a distinguished body of concert music. His 'Piano Concerto' was written for Arthur Rubinstein, who had requested a 'one-movement piano concerto, pianistically grateful and not too cerebral', but it was never orchestrated by the composer and therefore never performed in his lifetime. The American conductor and painist Scott Dunn completed the work and gave its première at Carnegie Hall on 1999 to great acclaim. Duke's 'Cello Concerto' is a mature, overtly romantic work in which the influences of Prokofiev, Stravinsky and Shostakovich can be heard.
