Rokeach - Going Up? for Flute, Viola and Cello - CM147
"Going Up?" was commissioned in 2007 by the New York trio Eight Strings and a Whistle and completed in 2008. The material and energy of the piece continually pulls the listener upward, hence the title. There are three themes, all ascending, introduced in the first moments respectively by the flute as the piece opens, the pizzicato cello in measure 4, and the pizzicato cello again in measure 8.
