Program Notes

The first movement has a melody in broken time which starts the piece off with a jazzy feel. This is contrasted with a steady cello tune. The two themes are then combined in different ways. The second movement gives the players a chance to regain their breath. The third movement is minimalist. The fourth movement recycles a little waltz that I wrote a long time ago. The fifth movement is a jazzy tune (based on material from the second movement) and its aim is to send the audience out whistling.
