Philip Glass Songs and Poems for Solo Cello (2007)
A seven movement work for solo cello dedicated to cellist Wendy Sutter premiered in New York in January 2007. Originally based on the music of Glass' film score to "Chaotic Harmony."

This was a miraculous and moving set of Bach-inspired solo suites for our day: sequences, shooting out from their recurring bass note, would branch and flower; rhythmic curlicues would resonate and inflect in ways reminiscent of an Indian raga; simple descending minor scales would move the spirit like mournful Yiddish song.
