Considered by the composer to be his finest work, this concerto was dedicated to Archie Camden, who wrote: This concerto exploits the full range of the instrument, its ability for quick passage-work and its fine sound in soft melody. Sometimes jolly and a trifle mischievous, but in the lovely slow movement it can get full and warm-toned over the bass ostinato. The orchestral accompaniment is fairly light, with much use of the percussion- particularly in the last movement in an effective and witty duet with the bassoon.
