|O Traurigkeit (2006) cello concerto||Ian Munro||Sue-Ellen Paulsen, Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra||12 mins, 24 sec.|
A major work for cello and orchestra by award-winning Australian
composer Ian Munro, featuring acclaimed Australian cellist
Sue-Ellen Paulsen. Based on J.S. Bach's four-part setting of the
Lutheran chorale of the same name, O Traurigkeit
(O Sadness) evokes the spirit of Bach's chorales, and also of his cello suites - the first great works for this queen of string instruments. O Traurigkeit was created as a dual tribute to a revered composer and a brilliant cellist, revelling in Sue-Ellen Paulsen's passionate playing and gorgeous tone.
