Description
Newly remastered, this 2002 CD includes the gorgeous Elegy. It's a meeting of musical minds on every level, demonstrating the catholic artistry of both composer and cellist.

"Even when not composing music for film, John Williams tends to tie his music to fairly concrete images…. The inspiration for Heartwood, for example, came from a book containing photographs of trees. His Three Pieces for Solo Cello were attempts to reflect the African-American experience…. Williams describes the cello as groaning under the crack of the work-gang whip for Rosewood, dancing exuberantly in Pickin', and singing a lullaby in The Long Road North. Even Concerto for Cello and Orchestra, a piece that would seem to be the most traditionally 'classical' in its approach, is described as containing a 'hero's role' for the cello, allowing the instrument 'to address the audience in the manner of a clear and direct soliloquy.'''—All Music Guide
