Listen to an excerpt of Sarabande:

Who’s playing? Matt Haimovitz, cello

Sarabande was written in 2009 for Matt Haimovitz.  By turns stark, desolate, enraged and mournful, it is not a work for the faint of heart.  Sarabande owes its pulse and backbone to the traditional dance rhythm—the second beat of three emphasized over the first, the third often whispering or absent—and exists as a memorial for one lost too early and too inexplicably.
