Soliloquy – written for Keith Miller, a friend of a friend and part time cellist. It just seemed like a nice thing to do, and he apparently appreciated it (as did his teacher)... the first piece I had written with “pen in hand” for several decades. It is lyrical, lies in the first position, but has quite a bit of drama in it. I would hope that burgeoning cellists might embrace it and enjoy the small bursts of passion, not to mention the left hand pizzicati. For all that, the tonal language is quite sophisticated.
