Milhaud - Cello concerto N1 op.136

Milhaud - Milhaud - Cello concerto N1 op.136. You can download the PDF sheet music Milhaud - Cello concerto on this page.

Milhaud's first movement of this Cello concerto N1 op.136(written in 1934), shows the rhythmic introduction of the cello, by an urban melody that seems to he coming out of a Parisian music kiosk. He draws from the popular two-four time, sublimating it through an expression that is both tangible and poetic. In sharp contrast comes the second movement with its dark, questioning lyricism, whose noble character does not contradict the brisk, light aspect of both movements surrounding it, just the opposite. Milhaud simply attaches universal musical value to street art, a conviction brought to him by the shock of coming across Brazilian music during a trip to Rio. The entire third movement sparkles with Latina emotion. Such a discovery rehabilitates natural, good-natured joy, bursting rhythm, the happiness to be alive and stimulates the inspiration of this French man who remains surprisingly French in the midst of the influences he is subjected to, including the crucial influence of jazz, that musical source with its profoundly human aspect, and which is as deeply moving as any universally known musical masterpiece.
