Written for cellist Zuill Bailey, the cello Sonata bridges the language gap between Brahms and Debussy. In it the composer blends the rigorous linear contrapuntal development of the German tradition with the subtle coloristic constructions found in the French impressionists. The last movement is cast in a unique form named by the composer as a “spiraling rondo.”
