Aria with Commentary was inspired by walking through the streets of Florence in 2008 and overhearing a wonderful and spontaneous everyday mixture of singing, conversation and argument going on between various people who live there. So in this piece one cello presents a cantilena line while the other offers comments on it, and ripostes.

Notes taken from Toru, Atoll CD (ACD 143)
