Renaissance – Live

This is a composition for three cellos, written for a ballet choreographed by Courtney Bechamin entitled Split. The theme is “rebirth,” although Courtney extended this to “osmosis.” The title, Renaissance, is the French word for “rebirth.”

The music follows the emotion of the ballet, and uses resolved dissonances to get the sense of splitting cells. Just for fun, each movement is in a different mode, but the whole piece is in a single key.

This performance was recorded live in concert on 21 April 2014, with cellists Alexander Scheetz, Robert Rohr, and Sydney Bennett, at Shenandoah Conservatory in Winchester, Virginia.
