Programme Note

Intermezzo is an allegro sonata form movement for bassoon and piano of approximately ABRSM Grade 7/8 standard. The rich and highly varied bassoon part includes singing melodies, staccato rhythmic material, delicate ornamented figures and motives based on scales and arpeggios, covering a three octave register. It is supported by an energetic piano accompaniment that explores a wide variety of textures, occupying a harmonic world characterised by spicy added note harmonies, bitonality and unexpected modulations.
