Difficulty: suitable for student cellists and up. Many performances by Langley Community Music School students.
“Autumn Dreams” is one of the most successful pieces I’ve commissioned. I’ve since had a number of my students perform it and it is always received well. It is attractive, lyrical, clearly constructed. It’s language and technical demands are well within the realms of (Gr. 8 approx.) for an “intermediate student”.
