Concerto for Piano and Orchestra

Two versions

In 2016, the renowned french ensemble, Ensemble Intercontemporain, gave the world premiere of the second version for piano and chamber orchestra in a concert at the Philharmonie de Paris, led by Vimbay Kaziboni, with Dmitri Vassilakis as soloist.

The first version was originally written for full orchestra when Rune Glerup was still a student at the Royal Danish Academy of Music. In 2012 it was featured at the Venice Biennale in a concert with the SWR Symphony Orchestra.

The piece can be performed in both versions.
