Swing Shift - BSN/PN/optional percussion
Composer: Albert, Adrienne
Publisher: Adrienne Albert Edition (composer)
for bassoon and piano with optional percussion
by Adrienne Albert (b. 1941) - American composer
Swing Shift came about through a conversation with bassoonist, Christin Schillinger, who had been listening to songs from the 50s and 60s sung by the marvelous singers of the era, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn among others. We agreed that a new work for her should have the feel of that era. Once I came upon the title, Swing Shift, the piece almost wrote itself. It can be performed with or without a drummer! It was premiered at the 2013 IDRS Conference with Christin Schillinger (bassoon), Jed Moss (piano) and Keith Lloyd (drums).
