Harris’ Music for Solo Cello (1995) exploits scordatura to create rich, resonant new chordal possibilities on the instrument. The central presto is an exciting display of virtuoso pizzicatotechnique, which incorporates accented rhythms, strumming and double-stops. The scordatura tuning produces an augmented sixth chord from the open strings, the resonance of which dominates the sound of the work.
