I have been fortunate on many occasions to receive commissions from particular musicians, institutions or festivals. This has resulted in many successful premiers by the musicians the pieces were commissioned by. My cello Sonata was not a commission. In 2005, only few days after I came to Scotland, I heard Robert Irvin’s performance on Lunchtime Concert series. I immediately felt Robert’s strong musical personality, I always admire performers who take a score and add a level of authorship. I was inspired to write a piece for solo cello and few months after asked Robert if he would be willing to give the premier. The piece is in an adapted sonata form, the atmosphere being a tribute to the lineage of great virtuoso solo cello sonatas. For me this starts with Bach and ends with Hindemith and Kodaly. I have also included eastern Polish folk music
