Solace in Darkness

Solo cello pdf 3 pages
Pdf format. THIS PRODUCT IS AVAILABLE FOR IMMEDIATE DOWNLOAD

Solace in Darkness is a strong, intense and exciting piece to play. It is dark, with a powerful surging light shining through.
During a dark and intense tropical thunderstorm I was jamming with a tabla player in Sydney. We were working with Indian rhythms that he learnt during his time in India. In the session I created a melody I called “Ode to a Tabla” I have bedded the melody in Solace in Darkness, along with a heavy metal inspired melody and rhythm. The left hand plays pizzicato with the third finger whilst stopping the melody line with the other fingers. This takes a while to get used to, but with practice it becomes very effective and is an excellent way to strengthen the weaker third finger. I also call the piece Soilse in Darkness, which means “light in darkness” Soilse is “light” in Irish and sounds a bit like Solace.
Audiences of all ilks love it!
For Intermediate to Advanced players.
