Ready to Rumble (2019)
for two contrabassoons
by Gernot Wolfgang (b. 1957) - Austrian composer


Ready To Rumble! was commissioned in 2019 by an international consortium of 24 contrabassoonists.

 The 7-minute piece is based on two principal musical elements – a rolling, medium tempo composite groove, and a lyrical, harmonized melody serving as a bridge. Both elements appear alternately throughout the piece. The groove is slightly varied in each iteration, while the harmonized melody goes through more noticeable forms of variation.
