Over the last two days I have started and completed what will be the third movemet of a Cello Sonata. Wednesday morning about 1:00 AM I truned on the digital piano, sat down, put on the headphones and immediately began playing the first six measures of what has now become the opening statement of my first Cello Sonata. From measures seven to the end was conceived in Finale using my cordless optical mouse. The opning statement is repeated without variations. This is GPO Steinway and solo cello. I took about 12 collective hours to write this piece. It is by far the most satifying composition I have written to date. This is another of those "cup throwing" compositions.
I hope those of you who have taken the time to listen will enjoy this.
You will need to click on the link for my MySpace and select the F Sharp minor Cello Sonata.
