Composer: Morris, Alyssa
Mathematics: Sonata for bassoon and piano
by Alyssa Morris (b.1984)
The three movements follow the traditional fast-slow-fast pattern. Overall, the piece makes great use of rhythmic complexity between the bassoon and piano as well as very melodic writing to generate interest. It is challenging to perform and to put together, but well worth the effort. Premiered at the 2012 IDRS Convention at Miami University.
