Lento is a composition for orchestra written by Howard Skempton in It was Skempton's third work for large forces, and his first major success. Skempton initially set out to compose three short pieces to be played in sequence, but afterwards decided on a single large piece. The work is scored for 3 flutes, 3 oboes, cor anglais, clarinet, 3 bassoons, contrabassoon, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, and strings.

The instrumentation is the same as that of Wagner's Parsifal prelude, although Skempton's use of instruments is very different. Most of Lento is scored for strings alone, and although there's a central section scored for woodwinds, instruments other than strings are generally used to highlight various aspects of the music.

The piece comprises bars, but the single orchestral tutti occupies only eight. Timpani are used only twice, both times to produce a G trill. Sign in or Register. Howard Skempton Lento.
