An excellent recording of this piece, by Balthasar Hens and Hsiao-Yen Chen, is available on the dreyer gaido label.

This sonata was written out of pure self-indulgence by someone who enjoys playing his bass. The score makes substantial use of the extension to bottom C as well as the more sonorous upper register which is the bass clarinet’s best kept secret. The three movements are entitled Dali’s Stroll, Escher’s Dream, and Mondrian’s Holiday. I won’t say which of their works of art in particular popped into my head during composition but they are all artists with unique, idiosyncratic styles. Each section is based on personalities that I fabricated (apologies to art historians) with their oeuvres in mind.
