Merkin Concert Hall, New York, NY
Donald Palma, double bass / Speculum Musicae
The contrabass has always interested me for its special tone color and range. Having written solos for it in several pieces, I decided to write this for the instrument alone.
It was composed during June 2007 for the outstanding performer Don Palma.
