for Double Bass and Piano


Program Notes

Nocturne for Double Bass and Piano is a high-energy piece that, despite its intent as a solo for double bass, often acts as an engaging, collaborative duet between the two instruments. The runtime of 5 minutes contains an extended, unaccompanied bass solo as well as several soloistic piano excerpts all with varying time signatures and shifting rhythmic patterns that keep listeners engaged. Nocturne showcases a wide range on the double bass, reaching up to high D as a peak, with long, sustained tones, fast-paced bowed and pizzicato sections, and a variety of scalular and jumping passages to showcase the versatility of any intermediate to advanced bassist.
