||"Four Short Pieces for Double Bass" was written by Dave Anderson in 1995. No. 1 is the Prelude (Largo); No. 2 is Scherzando; No. 3 is Serenade (Andante cantabile); No. 4 is Capriccio (Adagio/Allegro Ritmico). The composer writes: "Writing for a solo unaccompanied bass was a whole new challenge and I often enjoyed improvising in any genre. My friend Sid King was interested and asked for a solo piece. This work is dedicated it to him and he premiered it. I worked to highlight lyric playing in the Prelude and Serenade, contrasting with rhythmic Bartok influence in the Scherzando as well as some funky grooves in the Capriccio."
