From the composer:
Max’s Moon is a work for cello and string orchestra inspired by two beloved children’s stories. The first movement cavorts and romps, sailing to a far away place, with a lumbering dance at its heart. The cello is crowned king of all, but in the end returns to the comfort of home. In the second movement we are rocked gently as the cello sings a tender lullaby, settling farther and farther into sleep against a background of distant melody.
Commission/Dedication: To Matt Haimovitz.
Premiere: First performed January 18, 2007 in Minneapolis, Min.. by the Minnesota Sinfonia, Jay Fishman conducting
