Compulsory Piece for the Final Round of the ARD International Music Competition (Munich, September 2019)

"The sound of the cello in this piece should be foggy like voice of Ella Fitzgerald. Sweet, smooth and pleasant, but at the same time slightly hoarse, rustle, dirty. There are almost only natural harmonics; either single, or in chords (triple-stops) including two natural harmonics, or double-stops of two harmonics. All should be played flautando , sul tasto and molto lasciar vibrare. Flautando and sul tasto should serve in search for the foggy color – harmonics should "speak " less clear than normally, but more smooth and decent". (Martin Smolka)
