Traces : sonata for violoncello and piano No. 1 / Connor D'Netto.

Work Overview

When asked to write new works by each the cellist David Freisberg and pianist Samuel Mitchell, I sought to combine the two. The result is equally a sonata for piano and violoncello as it is a sonata for violoncello and piano.

Opening out of hammering chords and grooving rhythms, the first movement falls into motoric textures., building in momentum before suddenly dissipating into an impressionistic wash.

The second movement opens with sparse cello textures, reminiscent of previous ideas. As this suspends above, brooding piano builds below. The parts collide, developing towards the heart of the work - lush, lyrical, elegiac.

A coda of sorts brings the drive of the first movement together with the soul of the second, before breaking apart and descending into traces of the music it was.
