"Although divided into three movements and following the traditional sonata structure, Cello Sonata No. 1 explores several contemporary elements. The first movement features musical material inspired by the minimalist ideas of the twentieth century. The second movement features lush, rubato material that allows the soloist to have freedom of expression. The final movement features a cadenza demonstrating the playing prowess of the soloist. Musical material from the first movement returns in the final movement developed and expanded. Cello Sonata No. 1 is a challenging, but expressive selection."
