John Luther Adams: Three High Places: Cello

Instrumental Work | Sheet Music & Songbooks
Subtitle For Solo Cello
Instrumentation Cello
Composer John Luther Adams
Publisher Chester Music

'Gordon Wright was the friend of a lifetime. For thirty years Gordon
and I shared our two greatest passions: music and Alaska. Gordon
was my musical collaborator, my next-door neighbor, my fellow
environmentalist and my camping buddy. These miniatures are
musical sketches of three moments and places in our friendship.
Like Alaska, Gordon was larger than life. He always lived his own
way. And he died just as he would have wanted. We found him
lying on the deck of his cabin in the Chugach Mountains, curled up
against his favorite birch tree, looking across the waters of Turnagain Arm toward the Resurrection Valley and the tiny settlement of Hope.' - John Luther Adams

This music contains no normal stopped tones. All the sounds are
produced as natural harmonics or on open strings. There are no
harmonics higher than the sixth. So these sounds should be clear
and resonant. Even so, balancing the harmonics with the open
strings requires careful attention.

The durations of the individual pieces are given at the end of each.
The total duration of the set is about ten minutes.
