A Cello with Attitude

Daelan Roosa
Grade 6, Barnet Elementary School

Daelan and Liz Reid, violist, discuss an element of his piece

“This piece for violin, viola and cello starts with an A in the viola and cello, and then expands to an arpeggiated chord in all three instruments. Then, the violin plays a slow melody with the viola playing harmony and the cello playing descending whole notes. After that, the cello plays a melody with the violin playing its earlier melody as a harmony line. Next, the viola joins in with a counter melody which fills out this section. The cello, who would like to have a little fun, changes the mood entirely before the violin and viola rein him in and end the piece much like the beginning.”
