The first comic piece for cello ensemble ever commissioned by the Boston Symphony Orchestra!
This piece for 12 Cellos will please cellists of all ages as well as their audience.
Imagine being able to clap your hands during the Brahms Double Concerto, or mix Schubert's Arpeggione Sonata with the theme from Star Wars.
Imagine playing the famous cello excerpt from Debussy's La mer actually hearing the noise of the seagulls and the cargo ships passing by.
Imagine a score that has tempo markings such as "Allegro cellissimo" or "Basketballo".
And how about this crazy moment where everything goes wrong and the whole group plays various alarm sounds?
his was a big crowd pleaser at its premiere at Opening Night at BSO in September 2012.
A perfect piece to feature the full cello section of an orchestra.
