Sonata for Bassoon

bassoon and piano
Dedicated to the North American bassoonist Scott Pool, the Sonata for bassoon and piano was composed in three movements. The first gradually builds up a motif with a pronounced rhythmic character. This generates an energetic dialogue between bassoon and piano until a more expressive central part appears. This develops through various abrupt modulations, but it is the elements of the first part that return to conclude.
The second movement is essentially based on a sustained, lyrical dialogue between the piano and bassoon. The modulations bring abrupt changes of colour that revive the listening experience.
The last movement begins with a short rhythmic motif from the bassoon. This is quickly joined by the piano, which completes the opening motif rhythmically and harmonically. A central section then offers more melodic elements, but the rhythmic and obsessive character remains very much present and the work ends in a very virtuoso manner, combining all the elements of this movement.
