Nathaniel Pierce and Eric Haugen, cello
This piece was written for a project organized by Richard Aaron, cello professor at the University of Michigan and the Juilliard School. University of Michigan composers teamed up with cellists (either as soloists, in pairs, or with piano) to write works somehow incorporating elements of Brahms’ Cello Sonata in E minor. My take on this project draws all its material from the original work, juggling and refracting it as if wandering through a Brahms-permeated dream.
