Donald WomackA Glinting Edge of Sky (cello and koto version)cello & 13-string koto チェロと十三絃箏10:00
Recorded on the album Intertwined (Albany Records)

A Glinting Edge of Sky suggests a passing beauty just beyond reach. The music is at turns spacious, lyrical, agitated, calm, reflective, and, above all, contemplative. Originally composed in 2008 for shakuhachi and 21-string koto, the version for cello and 13-string koto was created in 2017 for Duo YUMENO.

"Even at nearly ten minutes, A Glinting Edge of Sky sings intensely. [The instruments] play their own material at what seems like an illusion of each player’s independent pace. Yet the two strains fit each other. The score has the concentration of a haiku."
