for bassoon and track
by Kyle Hovatter (b. 1986)- American composer
The first published work for bassoon by a woman dates to 1930: Ruth Crawford Seeger’s Diaphonic Suite for bassoon and cello is a chromatic etude in duet form. In Diaphonic, Kyle Hovatter creates a fresh, and modern composition drawing from Seeger’s original source material. For bassoon and track, the work maintains Seeger’s contrapuntal and chromatic significance, while layering further textural and rhythmic layers to her dissonance.
