Maria Hester Park (1760-1813) was an English composer, pianist, and singer. This concerto is written so that the performer can play both the solo passages, and the orchestral reduction. The opening Allegro has a strong, pulsing theme, while the middle movement is a charming Andante. The final movement is a lighthearted, rollicking Rondo that showcases Park's virtuosic writing and wit. Recorded on Gasparo CD 281.
