Composer: Kibbe, Michael
Dark Moon is an original composition by Michael Kibbe commissioned by the National Cello Institute. This is a significant, four-movement work perfect for use in a full recital of cello ensemble music. With its many moods, driving rhythms, and varieties of tone colors (including the Intermezzo movement which is almost entirely pizzicato), this piece is a major work that will be extremely valuable to any serious cello ensemble group. While this piece is not for beginners, neither is it exceedingly difficult. Intermediate and advanced students will find it successful and rewarding.
