Written in 2007, this sonata was inspired by playing alongside a series of amazing contra bassoonists; Nick Lander, Alex Moss, Luke Whitehead and Sarah Nixon, who made me realise it's amazing potential as a solo instrument. Whilst the outer movements are jazz (even rock!) based, I decided on a simple folk tune like melody for the slow movement to show off the beautiful lyric voice of the contra, and a rhythmic dance form juxtaposing duplet and triplet rhythms for the ‘scherzo’.

I also have a bookshop on, where I sell a wider selection of books on all sorts of things, so do check it out, I get commission on each one and the sales also help to support other independent bookshops:
