Performance time 11 – 12 minutes.
This is music for double bass quartet, originally written for students at a Salamanca summer course in 2009-2011. There were students of different technical and musical capacity so I adapted mov 1 and 3 to be available for the youngest players. Movements 2 and 4 are not virtuoso writing but still a bit challenging.
I found an old recording from a rehearsal with the Gothenburg Bass Quartet on sept 11, 2011. The dry sound suggests we are playing in the bass room.
Played by Jan Alm, Jenny Ryderberg, Marc Grue & Charles DeRamus using our (fine) GSO basses this gives an idea of how the music could be played even though we never got round to make that recording as planned.
