This original version for cello and piano was my first formal composition when I started composing in 1998. When my brother, Ralph, heard it, he cried and said that he wished that my parents could have heard it, too. The form and harmonies of this piece are mostly traditional, but there are a few surprises. There is a "cantorial" cello cadenza. The sound clip is the computer playback and lacks expression. Also near the end the D before and after the fugue variation, are incorrectly stretched out greatly and the ending passage is reproduced much too slowly. The sound clip with the orchestra version doesn't have these problems but is also a computer playback.The orchestrated version is sold separately for $40.00 and includes this cello/piano arrangement.Duration 8 minutes. Year 1998.
