An original work for Cello and Piano, entitled Fanfare & Soliloquy for Cello; which would suit the concert hall, or more informal recitals and occasions.
If you would like a work composing for that special occasion, let me know, my rates are very reasonable.

Fanfare & Soliloquy is an outstanding choice for a recital or contest piece for an intermediate-level student of the Cello. The rousing Fanfare appears both at the beginning and end of the work, surrounding the lovely Soliloquy. While quite dramatic and featuring a few sections of technical challenge for the soloist, the work is also quite short and accessible - and a clear audience-pleaser!
A skilled accompanist would be most helpful given the mixed meters and frequent tempo changes; however, the work would also be a manageable challenge for a young pianist working on his or her accompanying skills!
Overall, the piece helps to fill an important void for the Cello repertoire - that of new, original works for the instrument which are accessible for musician and audience alike.
