The Mini Piano Concerto
In the United States in the 1920s, George Gershwin and Hollywoodian cinema gave the start of the mini piano concerto written in symphonic jazz style. In 1941, the Rachmaninovian Warsaw Concerto (9') by British Richard Addinsell triggered a vogue which lasted around thirty years, and touched composers from diverse backgrounds and nationalities, from George Antheil to Dmitri Shostakovich, from Arthur Bliss to Miklos Rozsa, from Duke Ellington to Henri Sauguet, from Norman Dello Joio to Malcolm Williamson… For this thesis, we have established the first (chronological and alphabetical) repertories of mini piano concertos: more than 300 works.
Aux États-Unis, George Gershwin et le cinéma hollywoodien donnèrent dans les années 20 le départ du mini piano concerto de style jazz symphonique. En 1941, le rachmaninovien Warsaw Concerto (9’) du britannique Richard Addinsell lança une vogue qui dura une trentaine d’années et inspira des compositeurs de tous horizons et de toutes nationalités, de George Antheil à Dmitri Shostakovich, d’Arthur Bliss à Miklos Rozsa, de Duke Ellington à Henri Sauguet, de Norman Dello Joio à Malcolm Williamson… Nous avons établi dans ce mémoire les premiers répertoires (chronologique et alphabétique) des mini piano concertos : plus de 300 œuvres.
Fréquemment mise à jour.
My name is Corentin Boissier, French neoromantic classical composer. I’m the one who discovered the Internet fake "Pandora Selfridge concert pianist" that deceived thousands of music lovers, journalists and young composers. As I was going to be involved in this fake ("Pandora Selfridge", with whom I was in correspondence for two years, was going to perform one of my compositions for piano), on November 27, 2014 I asked "Pandora Selfridge" to end this fraud. The creator immediately destroyed his creation...
Here’s all I know about this strange and elaborate hoax.
