Description: Composed in the early 1970’s for contrabass virtuoso Bert Turetzky, as a paeon to the instrument and its players, Cords is a brief, hilarious duet for a brilliant bassist and an awestruck student accompanied by an adoring soprano who sings their praises and catalogues their alternate instrument names.
