Soundings (2001) at 2019 International Society of Bassists Convention, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN, June 8, 2019
My composition Soundings (2001) for double bass quartet was awarded the Grand Prize in the Bass Ensemble Division of the 2018 ISB/David Walter Composition Competition and was performed beautifully at the 2019 International Society of Bassists (ISB) Convention at Indiana University on June 8th by this amazing bass quartet (seen at right in rehearsal):
Aleck Belcher, St. Louis Symphony
Rachel Calin, Associate Professor, College Conservatory of Music, Cincinnati
Kurt Murokii, Professor, Indiana University
Robert Goodlett, Assistant Principal Bass, Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra
Soundings appears on my Innova CD Flux and Fire released last July in a recording featuring Robert Oppelt (Principal, National Symphony Orchestra), Rick Barber (Associate Principal, NSO), Jeffrey Weisner (NSO) and Ali Kian Yazdanfarr (Principal, Montreal Symphony Orchestra). You can hear this recording at SoundCloud.
Performance materials can be purchased in either print or PDF versions (available online 24/7) at American Composers Alliance.
