Tre Bicinia per bassi
By Anthony St. Pierre February 2014
 
B gtB
 
 
Entrée develops a three-note motif and its inversion. Pas de douze is a lilting twelve-tone (chromatic) serial essay; the tone row is bracketed at the beginning. Exploiting the mournful timbre of the low recorders, Cantillation is a lament in which the two instruments take the melodic role by turns. It may recall the Armenian-inspired melodies of Alan Hovhaness. The wavy line in b.23 indicates heavy vibrato. Players of upper intermediate skill will find these duos within reach. Total duration: 5:10

The composer plays the bass and Scott Paterson the great bass on the accompanying recordings.
