Lamentation & Dance (for 'Cello Solo with Piano)
"Lamentation & Dance" was composed by Mark Wolfram in April of 1998 for the
confirmation of his godson, Paul, a student 'cellist.
Following a short piano introduction, the
'cello enters with the plaintive "Lamentation" melody
which is offset by carillon-type chords in the piano. After a
repeat of the melody and a short cadence, a buoyant, waltz-type
"Dance" section with melodic ornamentation and unexpected
tonalities plays twice on its way to a reprise of the "Lamentation"
section. The piece is capped off with an introspective and melancholy
coda. As the 'cello sustains its final tone a final carillon
statement is delivered by the piano.
"Lamentation & Dance" is a GRADE 3 composition and makes
a wonderful student recital piece, with its satisfying structural
elements and unexpected harmonic twists. The duration is approximately
A solo 'cello part and piano score are included.
