2 jazzy pieces based on the theme of Outer Space and composed for the intermediate bassist (Grade 6/7). Space Rock is an energetic piece full of rhythmic momentum and invention, with lively syncopations to create a work full of musical and technical challenges in the orchestral register. Space Mission was first published in Bass-in-Space, now no longer in print, and is set for Grade 7 (Trinity-Guildhall). It is a fun piece, in bass clef throughout, and with effective challenges for the developing bassist. Tony Osborne is a past master at writing exciting, interesting and idiomatic music for young bassists.
