Duo (1925)
for bassoon and contrabass
by Albert Roussel (1869-1937) - French composer

This short work was written for Serge Koussevitzky, double bass virtuoso, on the occasion of his being made a member of the "Legion d'honneur". It reuses a theme from Roussel's opera, La Naissance de la lyre, composed one year earlier. An additional bassoon part has been provided which enable playing together with a tuned-down double bass.
