LAMENTO

LAMENTO for 4 bassoons was composed in 1994 on demand of bassoon player Francis Pollet (artistic director of I Solisti del Vento, Belgian Wind Ensemble). In 2010 the composer wrote a version for 4 BARITONE SAXOPHONES.

It is a short work devided in 3 sections.

In the first section there are polyphonic imitations by the 4 bassoons.

In the second section the solo by the first bassoon, with ornamentations referring to etnical music, is  accompanied by a drown in the lower bassoons.

The last section starts from a homophonic texture debouching into a free aleatorical form.
