Price £8.50

Highly commended in the 2003 BIBF Composition Competition, this three movement work employs arco and pizzicato techniques throughout the range of the double bass. The contemporary and jazz styles add to a work brimming with character and invention. Teppo Hauta-aho successfully combines classical, jazz and contemporary idioms into a work of great invention and energy.

A challenging work for the adventurous bassist looking for something more stimulating than Dittersdorf or Dragonetti!
