Arvo Part - Pro et Contra Cello Concerto!
« on: May 19, 2008, 05:25:07 AM »
I love this piece! Eight minutes long written for Rostropovich in the 60s (this was before his minimalist phase). It's post modernist - Collage he called it. A great little piece. I love the way it erupts into this huge grandiose C major cadence at the end! Outragous stuff.
