Lullaby / Sophie's Flute Song / A Little Waltz / A Serious Joke Four short pieces exploring interesting and varied styles and idioms, but always accessible and enjoyable. Simple and supportive piano accompaniments make this useful for both educational and early recital work for the younger bassist. Lullaby has a gentle and lyrical melodic appeal; Sophie's Flute Song makes effective use of open strings, easy harmonics and pizzicato; A Little Waltz is more extended with some percussive accompaniment and A Serious Joke has a lively, rhythmic and humorous character. There is much to enjoy for the adventurous teacher and pupil offering new sound worlds and idioms to explore.
