The Cello is my favorite string instrument and second only to the clarinet among all instruments. I have always wanted to write a piece for it and this Concertino I hope does justice to some of the amazing qualities this instrument possesses. It starts with the string orchestra playing a somber theme. The solo cello enters with a rhapsodic motif that leads to the first theme. The middle section is based on the opening theme which also serves as the main thrust of the cadenza that follows a second theme. Each theme is developed through variations by the solo instrument as well as the orchestra. The solo cello has the final notes in this homage to a noble instrument. I have tried to use mainly, intervals of sixths that are not too difficult to execute in the double stops.
