Staud on Segue:
“When you tell people you’re working at the moment on a piece for cello often you find yourself being asked: ‘Ah, so you mean a cello concerto?’ No, I always answer – not a cello concerto! A music for cello and orchestra.
in the beginning, I coined this expression just as an aid for myself. Naturally
I might also have called the work Piece
for Cello and Orchestra – or quite simply Cello and
Orchestra, as for example Morton Feldman did. Or I could have
decided on retro-modern titles like Confrontation,
Constellation, …(con)cert(are), or even chosen the totally
Sketches for Violoncello and Orchestra.”
