Sonata - BSN/PN

Composer: Kay, Ulysses

Publisher: Prairie Dawg Press (Bruce Gbur)

Edition: 65191


Sonata for bassoon and piano

by Ulysses Kay (1917-1995)

Kay, one of the most important African-American composers of concert music in the generation following William Grant Still, finished this work in 1941 while studying with Paul Hindemith. The work is a single sonata movement, but does not necessarily fit the expected structural requirements of that most academic of forms. Kay published it in manuscript form in 1952, but withdrew it a few years later.
