Work Overview

I was invited by Australian bassoonist Mark Gaydon to write this piece, which premiered in the Adelaide Hills in July 2010. Mark was interested in many of the new techniques of bassoon writing and was keen to have a new work using some of these innovations. This piece aims to demonstrate both these techniques and the beauty of the bassoon.
