Vivace (performance score) - BSN/PERC
Composer: Penderecki, Krzysztof
Publisher: Schott (Germany)
for bassoon and roto-toms
by Krzysztof Penderecki (b. 1933) - Polish composer and conductor
Krzysztof Penderecki composed the Vivace for bassoon (or bass clarinet) and Rototoms in 1994 on the occasion of the 50th birthday of Justus Frantz. In virtuoso tempo, a thrilling dialogue develops between the restlessly rotating bass line of the wind instrument and the incisive interjections of the rototoms.
