I can recall the first time I heard this piece. I was living in Daytona Beach. I think I was 12? It was played on a show called Breakfast with Arts. Cellist Carter Brey performed the piece on Cello. The tomes and emotions in the music where so moving. I recorded the on VHS and would listened to it over and over again.The only problem was that the tape would get jammed form time to time. One day while hanging out with a friend I found a copy of the composition on a Cd compilation. I couldn't get my hands on the sheet music at the time so I learned the piece by ear.
