Programme Notes

This short, lyrical solo for contrabassoon is adapted from my contrabassoon concerto Plumb. It is free and expressive, beginning in the contrabassoon’s upper register and gradually descending through two octaves. Grace notes and colour inflections evolve into shuddering tremolos, finally closing on a plaintive melody.
