It's nice and well written.

I don't have much more to say. Quite easy to play, sounds really nice, my friends really enjoyed listening to me playing it. :)

Matthew Gibbon
Sonorous Sunrise for Bass

This is a very bass friendly piece and at the same time has a great melodic flow. It allows for individual interpretation which is something I always like to find in the music I play and pass on to students. The registers it uses are great for developing both a good solo sound and at the same time the clear sonority needed for orchestral playing in the lower registers.
The only thing I find a little inconvenient is the use of treble clef at the beginning especially from bar 12 to 15. I'm not accustomed to reading below a G in this clef so was surprised that the bass clef is not employed earlier.
As there is a fantastic performance by the composer of the piece, easily available, these problems are easy to surmount. All in all an evocative piece of music that allows the interpreter to develope sound, technique and musicality.
