Work Overview

Ariel's Dream is a concert level work for 'cello and piano, dedicated to Australian cellist Ariel Volovelsky, for whom the piece was especially composed and who first recorded this work together with Margaret Brandman. The music is reflective and emotional, moving at a relaxed pace.
The melodic material extends over the entire cello range, from the low and resonant sounds of the bass strings, through to the high register where the cello can emulate a violin. It also includes many expressive string techniques including harmonics.
The work revolves around two tonal centres, C minor and G minor, and the supporting piano part includes pleasant and sonorous modern harmonies. The cello and piano parts are interwoven with equally challenging roles. The piece is composed in a broad ternary form, with an introduction and closing section.
