Break out : for solo cello / Katy Abbott

Library shelf no. 787.4/ABB 1 [Not for loan]

Work Overview

Break Out! was written in 2000 for a university concert.  At the time it was a student exercise in the exploration of string writing but looking back, I can see that I could not help but include a melody and it helped me at the beginning of my path ascertain some direction! It has since been included as a finalist piece for the 2005 Hultgren Cello Biennial in the US and performed and broadcast in Australia.  It's a bit of fun contained to one A4 page.
