Yes for solo double bass (2007)

Written for and premiered by bassist Eleonore Oppenheim, this work draws its title from the

poem "Yes" by William Stafford:

   Yes

 

It could happen anytime.

Tornado, earthquake, armageddon. It could happen.

Or sunshine, love, salvation.

 

It could you know. That’s why we wake

and look out—no guarantees

in this life.

 

But some bonuses, like morning,

like right now, like noon,

like evening.
