Bassoon Solo – Consortium

I’m incredibly excited to be collaborating with Joe Swift on a consortium for a new piece for bassoon and piano!

Joe is commissioning six composers for his DMA recital next year, which he is calling ‘Room to Breathe’. The new compositions will be reflections on the craziness that this last year has brought, with moments of solace and contemplation on the year’s events. My piece will be more focused on depicting the craziness of the year than the meditative recollection and hindsight, but like the overall project, I’ll make sure to leave some room to breathe.

I’m honored to be one of the composers Joe is commissioning for this project and am looking forward to partnering with him and others on the piece!
