|Angeles (by the same musicians who are heard on the present CD), June 2004, as part of a series of concerts held at the historic Schindler House.
Descansos, past sets an ever-pizzicato double bass (a five-string, extending to low B), which is featured in a few solo sections, alongside a choir of nine ever-arco cellos, one of which soars up to the highest notes available on the edge of the instrument's fingerboard. (Erika Duke-Kirkpatrick is the featured first cellist.) The piece’s nine cello parts were performed for this recording by four cellists who were overdubbed. .
