Lukas foss music by lukas foss


The music of the 50’s shows the gradual influence of Stravinsky, also living in Los Angeles. This is very clear in a now forgotten “big” piece, the Concerto #2 for Piano and Orchestra, composed in Rome in 1950/51. This work also received a New York Music Critics’ Circle Award . The overwhelming impression is of tremendous drive, confidence and fluency. I once mentioned this to Leo Smit, who was with Foss at the American Academy during these years but he immediately contradicted this assertion by saying that Lukas, on the contrary, worried every note into existence. One senses a mind extremely aware of other possibilities yet writing  music modeled on unilateral choice.
