Adagio for cello and piano, op. 1

Adagio for cello and piano, op. 1 is the first work composed by Romain Corbisier. He composed it in only one week when he was still at secondary school. The score has not undergone any change from its premiere.

This Adagio is a piece that tells a story, or better a seduction through a dialog between two instruments: the cello and the piano. This is therefore not an accompanying piece for the piano: both protagonists have an equivalent importance.

The idea of telling a story or a situation in music has a strong presence in Romain Corbisier's works. This Adagio is the first artistic expression of it.
