About the Composition

Composed by Andrew Kohn (Pittsburgh Opera, West Virginia University) for cello, double bass, and optional antiphonal gas-powered weed-whacker.

This piece recalls a summer job cutting grass in an old graveyard. They spent their breaks making up slogans for their business, "Orglawn of Hampden."

Sections of highly patterned music separated by zany remarks concerning chamber music and lawn care (vc, db).
