Caprices for Solo Cello
As a cellist, an ongoing pet project of mine is writing a collection of caprices for the instrument. True to the nature of a "caprice", they are virtuosic and meant for performance but also highlight the technical demands of the cello -- both in terms of general technique but also those specific to the performance of new music. Three have been premiered, and I am continuing to work on more.
Premiere: on a rolling basis
This work is a set of 11 miniatures featuring the viola joined by a crew of a few instrumental companions, dedicated to- and written for one of my closest friends to celebrate camaraderie, family, good memories, and excessive amounts of beer.
