Peer Music

(1993) Performed by bassoonists all over the world, Dead Elvis for solo bassoon and small chamber ensemble has become one of the most frequently performed works for bassoon. In this highly original work, Daugherty explores the Sturm und Drang of the hip, young, genius rock-and-roll Elvis versus the vulgar, fat, stoned Las Vegas Elvis. For performance of Dead Elvis, it has become a tradition for bassoonists to wear an Elvis Las Vegas white jumpsuit (easily rented from a local costume store). Duration - ca. 9:00 Chamber ensemble instrumentation: Eb soprano clarinet, trumpet, bass trombone, violin, string bass, percussion
