Two for Dan

Price £6.50

Composed for Dan Styffe, these two pieces are typical of the great and inventive music which Teppo Hauta-aho writes for unaccompanied double bass. The composer exploits the many lyrical and interesting aspects of double bass technique, including harmonics, double stops, pizzicato chords, glissandi and more, to create two atmsopheric pieces which offer much to players and audiences alike. These are so much more than technical studies and offer the advanced and adventurous bassist an opportunity to explore and display the great colours and timbres of the 21st-century double bass.

These pieces were premiered by Dan Styffe in Helsinki and received their UK premiere at Bass-Fest 2014 (Silk Mill, Frome, UK) on 5 August 2013.
