Zwiegespräch (2011) for cello or viola duo - ca. 5'
2012 ASCAP Morton Gould Finalist
Premiered July 2011: (Berlin, Germany)
In the summer of 2011, I had the opportunity of a lifetime to travel to Berlin to study with one of the great composers and teachers of the last half century, Samuel Adler. Under his guidance, I wrote this virtuosic cello duo as a kind of melancholy and tense dialogue between two lovers, hence the title of the work.
