Commissioned by renowned cellist and director John Todd. This work uses the full chromatic and expressive range of the cello to great effect, employing a variety of musical styles which explore a range of sonorities in subtle variation form. The opening bars introduce a simple rising theme in rich close harmony. A jazz-based variation follows, featuring an energetic pizzicato. This gives way to a quirky Viennese Waltz before the opening theme reappears in a passionate climax. Parts vary in difficulty from grade 5 to 8.
