Cellist Matt Haimovitz, who debuted a version of this piece in 2001 wrote that, “at it’s core…Impromptu is an extended contrapuntal play on the fugue subject from Bach’s Suite V in c minor for solo cello. Freely-paced, quixotic sections frame the work, churning the central motive through a kaleidoscope of permutations. One final gymnastic run up to [cello’s] highest positions and Impromptu unwinds in reverse back to the opening material like a palindrome.”
