The concerto, in one movement, begins in darkness but soon ascends into lighter worlds as the tempo increases. The personality of the cello – romantic, nostalgic, cheeky, irreverent and even wild imbues the work with a wide range of moods and characterisation.

Commissioned note

This concerto was commissioned by the Auckland Philharmonia with funding by Christopher Marshall

Dedication note

It was inspired by the wonderful playing of soloist Liwei Qin
