The three solo cello pieces were written as a gift for Audrey, with whom I have worked for many years, especially performing Merce Cunningham’s Biped. James has been a member of my ensemble for over 22 years and we have performed Lauda Dolçe I with my ensemble, where we accompany the solo cello with improvised drones and chords on double bass and electric guitar.
However, Audrey and James, as a duo, have developed a much more refined way of doing this and here these versions are played following a full performance of the original three pieces. This recording is very beautiful and Audrey and James have worked on this in great detail over many months.
