Sheet Music: Score
Improvisation and cadenza : solo cello / Larry Sitsky.
by Larry Sitsky (1969)
Out of stock
In the very early 60s, soon after returning to Australia after my
postgraduate studies in the
USA at the San Francisco Conservatory, I decided to write a cello concerto. Unfortunately,
I was green behind the ears and totally unprepared for this difficult task. After sketching a
certain amount of the piece, I simply had to give up.
Some years later the Swiss cellist, Raffaele Altwegg, asked me for a solo piece. I remembered
the fragmentary cello concerto and, in 1969, extracted material from it to create the
Improvisation and Cadenza. The 'Improvisation' part represents the thematic material of
the first movement; the 'Cadenza' is more-or-less as it was in the unfinished work, as is the
wind-up after it.
