Programme Note

"The Hill of the Heartless Giant" is a short work for solo double bass.

About 15 years ago, I was working, and at the same time one of my children was looking at the television - a programme for children, and suddenly I heard the end of a fairy tale (the hill of the heartless giant). I wrote the sentence down, and later it became the title of this bass piece. I still wonder who the giant might be... but I know for sure that it is not the performer nor Susanna Eastburn to whom the piece is dedicated; it is much more likely to be myself. In any case, the piece is about the hill!
