"Rhapsody (for Unaccompanied Violoncello)" was composed by Mark Wolfram as a graduation gift for his nephew Paul David Wolfram (a 'Cello major) from Lawrence College in Appleton, Wisconsin. Mr. Wolfram adds, "My good friend Jesse Levy, to whom I dedicated this composition, provided invaluable technical and musical feedback for which I'm very grateful."

Based on the concept of a contemporary approach to a Bach 'Cello Suite, this challenging work features many traditionally idiomatic 'cello techniques applied to a contemporary serial composition.

"Rhapsody (for Unaccompanied Violoncello)" is a GRADE 5 Violoncello solo and highlights the performer's mastery of complex rhythms, large intervallic jumps, contrasting dynamics and several different contemporary performance techniques. This composition provides the performer with an opportunity to highlight tone, musicallity and audience pleasing technique - perfect for the recital hall or the salon.  The duration is approximately 10½ minutes.

A full-sized Violoncello part, program notes and a composer biography are included.  Available only through this website from Sound Studio Publications.
