Composed for the BIBF's One Minute Wonders project in 2006, these short pieces are aimed at the intermediate bassist and have lively and inventive accompaniments. Each has its own character and message to convey, contrasting moods and styles in a tonal and very accessible style.
Effective music for any concert or audience and can be performed singly or as a suite. The challenges are effective and approachable for the intermediate bassist.
Judith Bailey is a prolific composer and has written a number of works for double bass including a one-movement Concerto for double bass, using the two bar theme of Haydn's lost concerto as its inspiration.
