for flute, oboe, Bb clarinet, F horn, bassoon, and contrabassoon
There just is not enough music with contrabassoon in it. I was primarily a contrabassoon player, so I wanted to write something that had a contrabassoon in it. This piece came simply from that desire. It took me almost three months to figure out exactly what the mutant tadpole was, but in the end I think the three-eyed, nine-legged, no-toothed amphibian finally came to the surface. Your mind can do more explaining for you than I can, so just let it wander.
