"Counterpoints" for Jazz Bass and Ensemble. Commissioned by Britten Sinfonia. World Premiere given by Eddie Gomez and Britten Sinfonia, Milton Court, London, 18th November 2015.
The solo part, written for Eddie Gomez, uses improvisation throughout. Various motives have been provided in the bass part, creating a particell which includes the most prominent orchestral elements of each section. It is expected that the soloist will develop these ideas freely and in dialogue with the orchestral musicians.
