Notes from the composer:

Cello, Celli was originally written for a Paris cello ensemble that stipulated that my son, Matthew, former student of Aldo Parisot at Yale, would be the improvising soloist. After dedicating many hours of intense work in order to meet their deadline, I was informed that the commission had to be dropped because the French arts budget had been drastically cut. When Ida Mercer, another former student of Parisot, asked me after a performance of my music at the Britt Festival in Oregon, if I had ever written anything for cello ensemble, I answered "Yes, Ida. I have just such a piece that's never been performed". I sent Cello, Celli to her for a subsequent performance with the Cleveland Cello Ensemble, sans improvisation. - DAVE BRUBECK
