|Instruments||double bass and piano|
Composed in 2002 for Double Bass 2000, this two movement sonata is adventurous and independent in style and content, offering impressive and interesting music for the advanced bassist. It employs the full range of the instrument with challenges for both performers, and is in a modern but accessible idiom.
"The work opens with an incisively rhythmic phrase using 12 tones, but the atonality is never acerbic and the harmonies gently persuasive...it should find its way into recital programmes." (ESTA News & Views)
