Edition: 35614


Blues for Contra
for solo contrabassoon with optional high-hat
by Michael Burns (b. 1963) - New Zealand composer and bassoonist

This piece is a reworking and adaptation of an earlier work Blues for Tuba, written for Dennis AsKew in 1998. This piece partially explores the roles of the soloist with a walking bass line as well as the solo voice. Some extremes of range are called for.
