Andante Religioso for 4 Cellos op. 95e

A score and 4 parts are provides. This is a substantial piece with various tempo changes and is rich in atmosphere. Although fairly atonal it comes to rest in C major eventually. The top part is mainly in treble clef and intonation is quite difficult. All parts have some double stopping and artificial harmonics. It would need an accomplished quartet to perform it well.
