This serenade for cello and piano is taken from a larger work, Dance Music for Concert Halls. There is a form of 'dance music' in the classical tradition whose purpose does not require any dancing. And I often wonder what it means, therefore, to listen to dance music while sitting still. Of course, there's an inner dance that lifts and moves the spirit and I have always been attracted to music of any age or genre that does that.
