The Cello Concerto is a unique piece. It does not strive to fit in with any other cello work. It stands alone in its starkness and unique approach to both the concerto form and the instrument itself. The work is in the traditional three movements and is mostly dark and foreboding in nature. Opening with ominous horns foretelling something of the future, we think, the Cellist enters dramatically after a Timpani Roll. Winter Into Spring is noted on the score, depicting the slow release of the weight of Winter and the embracing of the coming of Spring.
The Second Movement is noted spring into summer, and begins with the same motif which opened the work. The movement is extremely lyrical in its structure, allowing the Cellist and the Orchestra to weave a rich harmonic tapestry which never really settles on one particular key or chord.
The Third Movement is entitled summer into fall and again is announced with the same mysterious motif, now taken up by the Clarinets. Again the Cello comes to contradict the motif with her own ideas. The work launches into a type of Sarabande or Gigue. A lot more lighthearted than the opening, the Cellist is given a great deal of latitude in which to perform.

Sea Sparkle is a Tone Poem depicting the rise and fall of light and wave and the interplay of both as seen when gazing out over the Gulf of Mexico on windy semi cloudy days. The cymbals represent light, while the timpani depict water.

The Lark Before The Storm is another Tone Poem depicting what the title suggest. The piano solo depicts the Lark song. Everything before it depicts the approach of Storm.

The Gymnopodae Symphonic is just that, an orchestral exercise in tone, attack, the dynamics of sound, all embraced within the loose structure of the Gymnopodae.

Analise Cepter was born in Montreal in 1969. She has studied at the University of Montreal and has only recently relocated to Florida. For her, this is a debut of sorts, at least to Florida. Her willingness to participate in this project has literally brought this project to life. Without her, we would only have scores of notes without a voice.
The Bay Area Philharmonic is a privately funded organization made up of volunteer professionals and students who lend their time to the making of music. The composer has sought out and won their approval and enthusiasm for her works. They have performed several of Dr. Ende's works with great success. Limited to studio readings only, this organization has time and again proved their worth through single sitting readings. A lot of the CD works recorded are single sitting readings by the organization.
Once in a great while you may hear an "off" note, but given the complexity of the works and the brevity of rehearsal time, it is easily forgiven.
Our thanks to CD Baby for their continued support of the musical journey we are on. Without them, the world may never have heard of any of us.

Additional Notes:
The Cello Concerto was conceived after watching a Docudrama about the life of Cellist Jacqueline DuPres' and her struggle with Multiple Sclerosis. The struggle of this brilliant artist to play in spite of the disease was so inspiring that the work was born "of itself", the composer merely stringing the notes together as it were. The repetitive motif throughout the work represents the ominous future which Ms. DuPres' ultimately faced. Her death was a great loss to this world. This work was a very small attempt to remember Ms. DuPres' and who she was as a human being and as an artist.
"We all come from the same DNA" was a remark I overheard one evening. I cannot even say to whom it should be attributed, but it has stuck with me. Seen through that lens, all issues of race, gender, religion and identity seem to fall away. Of course we are all from the same gene pool, and a loss of anyone, whether a brilliant cellist or a simple fisherman in Tahiti, is of equal importance and it is only our proximity to the loss that determines how we feel about it.
We are all on the same journey together, starting from the same DNA source and headed to the same abstract end. My journey happens to be musical. I hope that in hearing my journey, you are encouraged to share your journey, confirming our wholeness with each other and all things upon this planet. Michelle Ende'
