There is a Bob Dylan lyric line wich goes: ”There must be some kind of way out of here, said the joker to the thief”. I was so disappointed when I realised it was ”joker” and not ”juggler”. Therefore I hereby establish the concept ”juggler and thief”. I think it gives a nice association to medieval street musicians. One of them distracts the audience while the other steals from pockets. Something for culture workers of today to be able to live on their art!
In this piece I have tried to approach the drums and the trombone to eachother. Both musicians are soloists. No accompaniment. The same music goes in both parts. Who is the juggler and who is the thief?
Clarinetto 1-2 in Bb
Clarinetto basso in Bb
Corno 1-2 in F
”Bopbop” is a play with the bassoons most typical and worn out expression: Staccato-quavers in steady tempo. With melting phrases and fast roulades the bassoons try to get rid of this, but in the end they are still captured in the ”bopbop”-music.
