‘Reve 3’ for solo cello is the first of the series to be commissioned, in this case by cellist Isabel Kwon. The piece oscillates back and forth between two kinds of music. One is a rhythmically active, animated sort featuring ricochets, quick 16th-note figures, and strings of pizzicati, and covering the entire range of the instrument. The other is much slower and broader, relegated to the lower and middle registers, and utilizing repeated cells of notes like echoes. As the music unfolds, these two types of music vie with one another for supremacy, ultimately yielding to the slower, more peaceful one.
