"Overture concertante" (2018) is, as the title suggests, an overture with a concerto-like character. The music begins with a slow theme in dotted rhythms in the manner of a traditional baroque overture. The faster music that follows begins first with the organ alone, employing a “basse de trompette” texture (the organ’s trumpet stop sounding in the bass register). This is soon answered by a bright, melodic theme in the strings. The interplay of these three main ideas is developed across the rest of the piece.
