Abstract

The Bassoon Concerto: Color & Light, is about light, color, childhood, introspection, and the sense of freedom that one may experience in the spectrum of life. The first movement is about the light in the goodness of all humanity. The second movement is about being lost in color, trying to find its path back to the light. The last movement is about finding the light again in the brushstrokes of an aurora. An aurora is a Spanish word that, according to the Royal Spanish Academy dictionary, is a rose-colored light that immediately precedes sunrise and the beginning or early stages of something.
