“Start right here!”
If you would like to sound contemporary and impressive on the bass you should start right here! This lovely piece by David Bennett Thomas is a wonderful combination of the atmospheric and the easily approachable. The flute part is relatively low, the rhythms straightforward and the accompanist will have great fun playing inside the piano. This is simply a little gem!

The piece is dedicated to the great Chinese poet Tu Fu from the 8th Century, whose poems still sound modern today. Tu Fu's poems often evoke night scenes as suggested in this music.
