Into the Fury

for double bass

Into the Fury (1993) for solo double bass is a study in color and contrast. The work explores a broad spectrum of double bass colors by incorporating diverse extended techniques throughout. Into the Fury begins with relatively calm musical gestures interrupted periodically by more violent and eratic figuration. As the composition evolves, the music becomes more wild and seemingly out of control until it reaches the final climax. This work was commissioned by the Venezuelan double bassist Luis Gomez-Imbert.
