CABARET OF SOULS - West Coast Premiere
10/26/2010 (updated 10/26/2010)



This piece began life as a commission from the International Society of Bassists, to write something featuring the double bass. I managed to forget that they asked for a running time of about 6 minutes! Being a songwriter, the beast naturally enough grew into a song cycle, and then into something with elements of theatre, which is how it is presented this evening – not quite a song cycle, an opera, a musical, a musical play or a bass concerto. A folk oratorio? A folkatorio? Perhaps better left unlabelled. - Richard Thompson
