The Offbeat Connection

TOP: Marimba, Alp horn. BOTTOM: Glass (h)armonica, Neopolitan mandolin.

 

You’ve heard concertos for piano, violin, cello, or trumpet. But how about one for mandolin, or tuba, marimba, glass harmonica—or the 12-foot-long Alp horn?

In this hour, some wonderfully entertaining orchestral works that composers have fashioned for solo instruments that are—shall we say—just a bit out of the ordinary.
