by Gianmaria Griglio | for cello and piano

This piece is rather old: I wrote it in 2007 in a quiet and relaxed spring afternoon. You know, when it’s around 22 degrees, sunny, with a gentle breeze…

This piece is exactly like that: a couple of minutes of uncomplicated life.

Here’s a version of the same piece with some small percussions added to it and adapted to the video.
