Intermezzo - BSN/HP

Composer: Shapiro, Alex

Publisher: Alex Shapiro

Edition: 70303


for bassoon and harp
by Alex Shapiro (b. 1962) - American composer


"Intermezzo" was composed as a response to the waves of the ocean, and as a reflection on the flow of a more introspective, emotional sea. A long and lyrical theme floats above a steadily rolling line, perhaps as a lengthy branch of kelp might dance from the force of each coming tide.

(Duration: ca. 4:00)

For Dana Jackson and Sophie Baird-Daniel

Intermezzo appears on the Delos Records CD,
The Dreams of Birds recorded by Jenni Olson, bass flute,
and Marcia Dickstein, harp.
