Sentiments of New Zealand

9 min 20 sec

Duration:

Program Note

North...south...east...west.


This piece for solo bassoon was written right after a transformative trip to New Zealand during my undergrad. I had the wonderful privilage to travel up and down the country, and the landscapes were the most breathtaking ones I have ever seen. I tried to paint a picture from my memories of the four corners of NZ which gives the solo piece defined sections. The player is instructed to walk during the performance as well as play wind effects and complex multi-phonics.
