Levi's Dream (Score & Parts)-4BSN

Composer: Buss, Howard

Publisher: Brixton Publications

Edition: B428b


Levi's Dream
for four bassoons
by Howard J. Buss (b. 1951)- American composer


Levi's Dream for bassoon quartet (or ensemble) was composed during the Autumn of 2010. This colorful work showcases the agility and rich sonority of the instruments. The title refers to an imagined dream of Levi, the namesake of the Israelite Tribe. The Levites were known for their involvement in priestly duties and music. Although the composition is loosely programmatic, much of the music has a distinctively Middle-eastern quality. The soulful nature of the slower sections is enhanced by the expressive, luscious ambience of the bassoons. The composition features two sections with original tunes in the style of Jewish folk songs. One is slow and contemplative, the other jubilant. Levi's Dream is an audience-friendly work appropriate for the concert hall or in a house of worship.
