Editor's Note:

The 15 works in this book span a half-century of compositional activity and several styles. Some of them, like Elizabeth Bell’s Soliloquy or John McDonald’s Four Pioneer Shorts, are made up of several smaller pieces that can be performed individually or together. Others, like Lee Gannon’s Aurora, or Otto Luening‘s Lament for George (intriguingly, for solo cello or unison cello section), are standalone works that provide a small glimpse into the composers’ musical language. The majority of the works range in technical level from late intermediate to advanced.
