A nice chamber concert piece. I got the impression sad and perhaps foreboding but the harmonic rhythm is most engaging/interesting. The timing seemed right on, moving into a new episide around 1'20" then breaking into a more florid accompaniment at 3'27" where some of the earlier material was recapped. I don't know how you miked it but as things are, the bassoonist came through clear throughout. 

So it's congrats to you and the bassoonist.

I'll tell you what I'm enjoying about your work here, it's the fact that you have real people playing the music so wonderfully well. You are truly privileged to have that resource to hand, an ability to hear the passion that can be put into performance, and to see the true reaction to the created moment.

So many of us here are 'spare room' composers who work mainly in a digital environment and don't get to share the moment with our listener. We don't see the smile or the knowing nod, the quizzical glance or the sigh.

As with your piano work, this was a nicely constructed piece. I enjoyed the interplay between both instruments. Dynamics were spot on and there was a genuine warmth in the bassoon line. (it's a lovely instrument anyway and a joy to write with). If there was anything lacking, it was another couple of movements!

Keep up the good work.

Many thanks! Glad you liked it :)
