I have written many etudes and solo cello pieces over the years for my students and colleagues. Three Short Studies were written to explore color and range limits of the instrument. The opening movement alternates between pizzicato statements and occasional arco outbursts, with melodic lines often ending with octave displacements.The second movement features double stops and plays with dissonance at the second and seventh as well as mixed meter rhythms.The final movement relies heavily on artificial harmonics and re-tunes the low C down to a low G so the final statements rumble down to octave Gs in contrast to the high overtones.The MP3 is the second movement of this work.Performer in this recording:Ihsan Kartal - cello.
