Cello Variations II

Instrumentation
vc
Year
1975
Duration
7:00

I wrote both my Cello Variations for Fred Sherry, and the second (1975) was a birthday present for the artist. These are variations in the “modern” sense: the piece is a continuously self-transforming fabric in which the initial materials (reminiscences of celloish behavior from past music) are reprocessed into new entities. The whole takes about eight minutes to play.
