Sonata for Cello and Piano
The Sonata for Cello and Piano is a dialogue between the two instruments. After a short exposition and a piano monologue, the cello and piano engage in a dialogue. The cello begins each sequence with a recall of the opening melody, a series of fourths and half-steps, which is soon countered by the entrance of the piano on a different material. Each sequence also explores a different texture/timbre.
