Encore is a three-minute jeu d’esprit, an extract from Act II of the opera La vera storia that served to fulfil a commission from the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra in 1978. The orchestra was celebrating its 60th anniversary, and Encore, a miniature display-piece, sustains its good-humoured ebullience from start to finish. It should certainly end a concert rather than act as a curtain raiser – especially a concert where the audience deserves the reward, after heavy and demanding contemporary items, of being reminded that modern music can be light-hearted without casting off all avant-garde attributes.
