The Fizz @ 50 series

A series of fifty short pieces for double bass and piano from composers throughout the world, instigated by David Heyes to celebrate his 50th birthday. Each composer received a bottle of champagne (Fizz) as payment.


Douglas Mason writes: 'With a strong focus on syncopated rhythms, Latin Dance captures the atmosphere and energy of Latin American dance music. The melodic writing for the double bass ranges from sustained song-like passages to more lively sections and these effectively compliment the colourful harmonies presented by the piano.'

Latin Dance was premiered at Wells Cathedral School (Somerset, UK) on 29 September 2013 by Matthew Green (double bass) and Gus Tredwell (piano).


Douglas Mason began his musical training as a chorister in Gloucester Cathedral Choir under John Sanders. He subsequently read music at Durham University, and went on to train as a music teacher at Leeds University, also singing professionally as a lay clerk in the Choir of Leeds Parish Church at this time.

As a composer, Douglas focuses on choral works in particular, and he has also written and arranged music for schools. As a performer Douglas has sung on numerous television and radio broadcasts and appeared on recordings for several labels, including Abbey, Priory and ASC records. For several years he was also a member of the William Byrd Singers directed by Stephen Wilkinson.
