Why I like New York #1: I can walk from my apartment to the shop where I get my cello repaired. Just nine minutes. Mike, the repairman, and I shot the breeze for a while. He came to New York City from New Mexico many years ago to play jazz bass. Still does (Dixieland) at Arthur’s Tavern at 57 Grove Street.

This piece is really intended for cello and piano. But the Sibelius robot’s cello sound is unbearable, hence the instrumentation change. I’ll try the cello robot once I get some better sounds installed.
My current homework is to write a scherzo (ABA or ABA’), with this as the introduction.
