Sonata for Contrabassoon and Piano


From the Publisher

Written in 2007, this sonata was inspired by playing alongside a series of amazing contra bassoonists; Nick Lander, Alex Moss, Luke Whitehead and Sarah Nixon, who made me realise it's amazing potential as a solo instrument. Whilst the outer movements are jazz (even rock!) based, I decided on a simple folk tune like melody for the slow movement to show off the beautiful lyric voice of the contra, and a rhythmic dance form juxtaposing duplet and triplet rhythms for the ?scherzo?.

Difficulty guide: 6
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
