Commissioned by contrabassoonist Norman Spielberg, this concerto celebrates the extended range of the instrument. Originally scored for contrabassoon with clarinet, horn, and strings, this piano reduction stays true to the accompaniment. The warmly-received Concerto has been performed at IDRS conventions. For advanced performers. ______________________________________ Text from the scanned back cover: Concerto for Contrabassoon Contrabassoonist Norman Spielberg commissioned Dorff to create this concerto, knowing the composer is a bass clarinetist who celebrates extended-range instruments with the lyrical charm and supple technical facility of a hands-on woodwind performer. The 14-minute concerto is scored for Contrabassoon with Clarinet, Horn, and Strings. In addition to a fully performable piano reduction, the concerto is also published in a "Quartet Version" for Contrabassoon, Clarinet, Horn, and Piano, with the piano playing a reduction of the strings. The warmly-received concerto has been performed in all three scorings at annual IDRS conventions.
