Sonatina d'Amore for Two Contrabassoons SONATINA D'AMORE was commissioned by Susan Nigro and Burl Lane for their Crystal CD, The Two Contras." Dorff chose the title to reflect his love for the sonority of two cantabile contrabassoons crooning together, because the many passages in parallel thirds are reminiscent of vocal love duets, because the word amore evokes lower instruments (as in oboe d'amore); and to honor Sue Nigro's Italian heritage. The work was premiered by Nigro and Lane on the 1998 Chicago Symphony WFMT Radiothon." ____________________________________________ See also the list with descriptions of "More Music for Contrabassoon and Bassoon by DANIEL DORFF" (on the back cover).
