          A beautiful single movement cello piece. It is composed in neoromantic style, but has fresh harmonies and a thoroughly idiomatic lyricism. It is an adaptation from a violin piece, so there are some rather tricky passages - not for the faint hearted. Works even more effectively in the version for cello and orchestra, in which case this score can be used as a reduction of the orchestral part for rehearsal (but it also works well as a recital piece).
