Dark Pastoral, Op.112
|Category|| ||Orchestral > Concertos|
|Duration (approx)|| ||11 minutes|
Cello, 2.1.ca.2.2 - 2000 - strings
Based on the surviving fragment of the slow movement of Vaughan Williams' Cello Concerto (1942). There are about four minutes of music in the original two-stave short score which David has orchestrated (there are just a few instrumental indications). These comprise an A section of what would probably have been (loosely) an ABA movement (the score ends just as it is branching off into something else). David composed about six more minutes of music based mostly on the first section with some new material in the middle.
