Bassoon - Advanced - Digital Download
Composed by Tom Swafford. 21st Century, Contemporary Classical. Score. 5 pages. Published by swaftunes (S0.390021).

Item Number: S0.390021

Showpiece for solo bassoon that uses the bassoon's full range of pitches, dynamics, and articulations, with a lot of drama, energy, rhythmic drive and some rather extreme contrasts.  The title refers to the fact that I wrote it very quickly, almost like an improvisation. I also called it this because of its difficulty. I thought I might be asking too much of someone if I were to ask them to play it. But someone did play it! It was premiered by Ryan Hare in Seattle in 2002. Ryan went on to record it for his album Intrada (Present Sounds Recordings, 2004). duration: 6 minutes. ASCAP.
