From the composer of Lord of the Rings comes this new large-scale work for solo cello and wind band. Casanova is a musical portrait of Giacomo Casanova who lived from 1725 to 1798. This illustrious character, represented by the cello, takes shape by means of eight musical scenes. The events concentrate on some of the most striking episodes from Casanova's adventurous life: his arrest, his captivity and his escape from the ill-famed Piombi prison in Venice. Casanova also pays musical homage to one of de Meij's favorite composers, Puccini.
