The tempo indication is – moderato
The opening seven bars are an accompanying figure which Johnstone had included a while previously in a short film. Using this as a kind of harmonic blanket, he composed very cantabile melodies on top; a somewhat romantic idealism present but with a poignant feeling. It is not especially difficult for the cellist, but the whole playing register of the cello is used (registers of 2 octaves on the top A string). It will need at least an intermediate cellist to coax out the best of the expression. The piano part is somewhat simpler, but needs full care to support the cellist.
This musical creation was originally written for: Xavier Berraondo
