Dance Suite for contrabassoon and piano (duration: 8′)

for Kyle Sodman

Set in six movements, “Dance Suite” for contrabassoon and piano explores various dance styles, both new and old. The piece opens with a flashy, toccata-like prelude before segueing into an off-kilter waltz that sees the two players chasing each other until fading into nothing. A haunting ballad and energetic tango form the centerpiece of the suite, and a short passacaglia leads into the finale, a virtuosic tarantella that stretches both players’ technical abilities.
