The ‘traditional’ version copied down. And a new concert version of this old Catalan melody, much loved by Pau (Pablo) Casals. Johnstone has produced a subtle ‘virtuoso’ version, far more difficult than the original melody usually heard for all the harmonic implications are heard in the cello writing – however it should always remain delicate and pure. Johnstone’s ‘creation’ is dedicated to the North American cello virtuoso Wells Cunningham.
