Symposium

for violoncello solo

(1993)


Strangely — or perhaps not — I had become obsessed with aleatoric music when I was 13 without actually hearing any of it. I had read about it in a book about 20th century music in which was a score example of Penderecki's Threnody.  I felt compelled to write music like this, perhaps out of pure naïveté.
