World Premi�re: Soloist Susan Nigro at Lutkin Hall, Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois, Thursday 12 October 2006 at 7:30 PM.

Commentary by Left Brain vs. Right Brain. RB: "After my Theme and Variations in G Minor for Contrabassoon and Orchestra was completed last Leap Day, that seemed like all I had to say for the contrabassoon voice. Many moons later a funny thing happened on the way to Kansas, where my wife, author Denise Swanson, had a book tour. A Brazilian bossa nova for contrabassoon and piano suddenly took shape." LB: "The music of South America has long fascinated me, as one might ascertain from my Two Brazilian Dances, and from my Tango Nost�lgico � la Argentina and Uruguay. This bossa nova is a perfect encore for contrabassoon and piano. It is much more concentrated than an authentic Brazilian bossa nova, because it includes elements of sonata form." RB: "We also snuck in the musical shorthand for 'contrabassoon' in bars 22 and 26, with German note names C-BASS – kinda like BACH for Johann Sebastian Bach or DSCH for Dmitri Shostakovich." LB: "This encore piece was completed in October 2004 in Lawrence, Kansas. Susan Nigro performed the world premi�re in recital at Lutkin Hall, on the Northwestern University campus, Evanston, Illinois on Thursday 12 October 2006."
