Ellen Taaffe Zwilich, Lament, for Contrabass and Piano.  Originally composed in 1999 for solo piano, in memory of Judith Arron, whose visionary goals for Carnegie Hall were matched by her abilities to achieve them.  The performance challenges in Lament are musical rather than technical: finding and projecting the line from beginning to end; using rubato for expressive and formal purposes; shaping phrases; achieving variety of color; and employing these dimensions to create a spontaneous and personal rendering.  Two piano aprts are included to provide for solo tuning as well as concert pitch performance.
