  • November 18, 2014 Lyrical modern piece

    A great piece to showcase a good range of technical elements particularly with the bow.

  • September 14, 2007 A lovely and interesting piece

    The music is well-written for the bass and has interesting harmonic ideas. I recommend it as a good 20th-century work for a recital by an advanced student or professional.
