Arrangements for Strings

Eugene Bondi's Concerto in D Major, Op. 2 is a show-piece for the upper-intermediate level cellist. It is a single-movement work approximately six minutes in duration. Opening with bold and lyrical themes in D major, it moves to a tranquil, contemplative section in G minor, returns to D major, and builds to a spirited conclusion. Thumb position, when used, is based primarily on the half-string harmonic.
