Impromptu for Bassoon and Piano
New! Impromptu for Bassoon and Piano is an energetic, lyrical solo, written for Smith’s daughter, Pam, and easily accessible for a high school or college bassoonist. Based on a lighthearted melody, the solo has some technical passages based on arpeggios, challenging rhythmic passages in Smith’s signature 7/8 and 9/8 bars and a complementary piano accompaniment. Bassoonists will enjoy performing this work which explores the entire range of instrument, challenging the bassoonist to portray both expressive and spirited styles.
