The first movement of my Cello Concerto opens with a theme in C minor by the solo cello reminiscent of the ’Baroque’ era. It is contrasted by the second theme based on 1960’s ’High life’ music from West Africa and is briefly introduced by trumpets and woodwind before the solo cello embraces it. Two African instruments namely the ’Kidi’, an indeterminate pitched drum and ’Shekere’, a shaker are part of the accompaniment to this theme. Both themes are developed and then reintroduced in the recapitulation which ends with the second theme. I decided not to add a cadenza as I feel the solo cello sections are expressive enough. I am still working on the last two movements.
