Misc. Comments

There are two issues – maybe both are the same – that is that there is very little repertoire for bass and piano until the 20th century. That means that bassists have little opportunity to play lyric, romantic music as was written particularly in the 19th century. Not to mention that most new bass music exploits the high registers primarily, as if it were a cello.

This piece deals with both of these issues, for there are abundant passages in the low register and it is unabashedly romantic. So I hope this helps to fill this void. This was my intention.
