SEVEN (2020) for solo cello (PDF Digital Score)
Commissioned by Thomas Mesa, SEVEN for solo cello (2020) by Andrea Casarrubios is a tribute to the essential workers during the global COVID-19 pandemic, as well as to those who lost lives during the crisis.
"My intention with this work was to create an experience in which two opposites coexist: solitude and resilience during isolation, and a sense of community and solidarity. The piece ends with seven bell-like sounds, alluding to New York's daily 7 PM tribute during the lockdown — the moment when residents from several cities and countries clapped from their windows, connecting with each other and expressing appreciation for those on the front lines." — Andrea Casarrubios
