    Instrumentation: Solo Instruments: Bassoon
    Genre: Contemporary


    Stuff is the first of four recital pieces commissioned by and dedicated to 78 adventure-seeking tubists representing 30 states and three countries, who fearlessly joined the 2001 Solstice/Equinox Commissioning Consortium. As each solstice and equinox approached during the year 2001, a new piece was sent out to the participants. All four pieces (Stuff, High Autumn, Just a Thought and Endorphins) now exist in multiple versions for orchestral and band instruments and are programmed frequently at conferences and on student and faculty recitals throughout the year.

  3. Sunken Garden, The

    Composer: York, Barbara Arranger: Bobo, Richard S.
    Instrumentation: Solo and Chamber orchestra Instruments: Contrabassoon
    Genre: Contemporary

    Originally composed for Contrabasson and Piano as "Sonata" and subtitled "The Sunken Garden", Richard Bobo has masterfully arranged Barbara York's work for Contrabassoon and Chamber Orchestra accompaniment:

    Piccolo, Alto Flute (or Flute substitute), English Horn, E-flat Clarinet (B-flat Clarinet substitute), Bass Clarinet, Timpani, Percussion I (Vibraphone, Triangle, Suspended Cymbal), Percussion II (Timpani), Violin I, Violin II, Viola, Cello, and Contrabass

    The composer's original program notes: My many thanks and much admiration go to author, John Connolly, for some of the images I have used in this piece. These have been taken from his wonderful novel, "The Book of Lost Things", published by Atria Books in the US and Hodder & Stoughton in the UK.

    The concept for this piece involves overcoming the darkness in oneself as well as in others, and you will find some musical material used and then later reused in a different context and with a more positive tone and outcome resolution as the movements progress. My thanks also go to The Sinquefield Charitable Foundation for commissioning this piece and to Elizabeth Roberts for premiering it.

    Barbara York, 2014

  4. Swamp Song

    Composer: Burns, Michael
    Instrumentation: Solo and Electronics Instruments: Bassoon, Electronics
    Genre: Contemporary
    Swamp Song was written for bassoon and downloadable backing by Michael Burns in 1986. The composer writes, “All of the sounds on the were originally produced in some way on the bassoon and then manipulated electronically. One of the aims was to blur the lines of distinction between electronic and acoustic sounds.” The composer also mentions that the title is derived from the nature of the sounds that emerged on the tape part. The piece is around 9 minutes long and features the bassoon performing multiphonics among other extended techniques. Learn More

  6. Three Dances

    Composer: Zugger, Thomas
    Instrumentation: Duet Instruments: Bassoon, Clarinet, Trombone
    Genre: Contemporary
    In 3 movements : Jazz Waltz, Slow Dance, and Irish Jig. In this charming and entertaining work the composer envisions two people dancing with one another. The "lead" in each dance is shared in alternation between the two instrumentalists. The first movement, Jazz Waltz, is in ABA form with the middle section being a waltz in 4/4. The melody is introduced by the bassoon (or trombone) and is passed back and forth throughout. In the enchanting second movement, Slow Dance, the musical material undergoes continuous development with the equality of the parts being paramount. The energetic final movement, Irish Jig, opens with an intriguing mixed meter section which leads to the rousing jig. It concludes with an exciting and frenzied accelerando and fugue. This work is fun to perform and has a great audience appeal! The clarinet and trombone version is recorded on the CD Dances and Dreams [Mark Records 8290-MCD] Learn More

  9. Turbulent Times

    Composer: Buss, Howard J.
    Instrumentation: Trio Instruments: Bassoon, Flute, Oboe
    Genre: Contemporary
    Was composed during 2009, a time when The Great Recession held its powerful grip much of the world, and uncertainty continued to build within American society. There was a general sense that the prosperity of the past may never return, and that the future may bring even more hardships. As the seemingly endless wars in Iraq and Afghanistan wore on, many did not expect peace to return in the foreseeable future. Yet, life went on. The music of Turbulent Times suggests the ebb and flow of the intense uncertainty felt by many with the more pleasant aspects of everyday life. Following the lyrical and plaintive introduction, stormy passages give way to sections of relative tranquility, only to reappear. Learn More
