    Au Quai

    For bassoon & viola. Written for the London Sinfonietta for Oliver Knussen's 50th Birthday. The title of this piece was suggested by Arnold Schoenberg's short story "To the Wharfs" in which he describes the mounting anxiety of the members fo a French fishing village as the boats and the sea-bound fisherman failed to appear after a storm and several days' absence. When they were suddenly sighted, all shouted "to the wharfs aux quais, O.K." duration 3:00 minutes. - the composer
