Sheet Music: Score & Part(s)
A Moment's Peace : for cello and piano / Romano Crivici.
by Romano Crivici (2018)
Starting with an adagio, open string drones section (piano playing the moving lines) the piece moves into an Andante; simple melodic writing -being a violinist myself, I could be tempted to say it is effective string writing, and 'sits' under the fingers. A useful work in learning to sustain sound and tone, as well as being a fun piece....I included some free, ad lib harmonic glissandi on the open D string.
Initially composed in 2006, this work began as a quick sketch for some young beginner violin students of mine in need of something to play (I think they had forgotten to bring their music book to the lesson!). I developed it further in 2011 into its present form; still simple, but now just music, not specifically just for students. Going through the process of cataloguing and archiving my works, I remembered that I had an idea at the time that it would work rather well for cello, but never quite got around to doing so. So, there you go, it's done.
