Tom Flaherty–Cello Concerto. Robert deMaine, cello; Genevieve Feiwen Lee, piano. Mvt II. "Prayer"

Cello Concerto was written for and is gratefully dedicated to Robert deMaine, whose musical artistry and vibrant personality are a constant inspiration.

I. Questions reflects our turbulent, exciting, and sometimes threatening times. The cello commands the stage with its opening questioning gesture and the orchestra responds with varying degrees of encouragement and disagreement. After a searching and emotional solo cadenza, the cello achieves a semblance of triumph, which devolves into a guarded peace.

II. Prayer – Against curiously rotating frames of reference, the cello sings imploringly for answers and resolution. The orchestra grudgingly provides resolution.

III. The Universe Answers – with scorn, mocking taunts, but ultimately with an invitation to dance. –Tom Flaherty
