Parallax of Mars 2014

Commissioned by the London Sinfonietta for their principal bassist Enno Senft. Parallax of Mars for double bass is gruff, rough and lyrical. The double bass is played primarily in its lowest register in such a way that it gives a sense of struggle and urgency. This is counterbalanced with moments of lyrical music that reach into the higher "cello" register of the bass, offering moments of light and beauty. BUY the SCORE/PART

Instrumentation: Double bass. Duration: 7 min.
