Many years ago I was on a flight to another premiere and had the pleasure of sitting next to a sonic engineer. It was a fascinating conversation talking about the different aspects of his career and hearing him expound on the similarities between our chosen professions.
Ever since that flight, I wanted to write a "Sonic Rhapsody". I had originally thought of having it be a more esoteric piece, exploring different sonic colors and effects. Instead, for this Sonic Rhapsody, I decided to fill a hole in the contrabassoon repertoire. This wonderful and deserving instrument has so little concerto repertoire and most of the pieces that do exist are quite difficult (and none for orchestral winds accompaniment). This Sonic Rhapsody features a lyrical and approachable contrabassoon duo feature (with piano) to include a brief cadenza for each soloist.
Sonic Rhapsody for Contrabassoon, Piano, and Orchestral Winds is dedicated to the wonderful artists who commissioned, recorded, and made this piece possible.
