The Triptych for Cello and Piano paints three pictures influenced by the elements of the French culture. The first movement, entitled Farandole is a spirited circle dance of Provencal origin. The second movement – Legend – is a lament song with chant-like motives, evoking the sense of loss over long-forgotten kingdoms and languages of medieval France. The final movement “Carousel” is a playful ride through harmonies reminiscent of early twentieth century French music.
