Classical repertoire

Moon Prayer: Callisto

For double bass and piano.

Written as if from the perspective of an imaginary observer on the surface of Jupiter, gazing in awe at the moon. The feeling is of reverence and silent prayer - a meditation of great tenderness.

Features a rolling 12/8 section with cross-rhythm groupings in 3 and 4 throughout.

Moon and Rain: Europa

For double bass and piano

A reverent prayer and meditation, as if - from the surface of Jupiter - one is gazing in revelation upon the amazing sight of such a moon.

Featuring a flowing piano part  played mostly legato. The bass part can be played without vibrato in the quieter passages, with vibrato used for emphasis only throughout if at all. There is a cadenza-like passage that can be played freely or improvised by the performer - using a common Indian scale.
