An old work from 1976 has been discovered in Theo Verbey’s archive. It is the Sonatina for bassoon and contrabass that Verbey wrote on the occasion of the wedding of two colleagues from the Delft Symphony Orchestra, Nel and Diemer de Vries. Although Verbey’s official works list only begins in 1985 with the work Aura, the Sonatina is already quite representative of his style. The characteristic humor, playfulness and use of canon as a stylistic means can already be clearly heard. The sheet music of this work is available through Theo’s publisher, Deuss Music at We eagerly await the world premiere of a work that Theo wrote at the age of 17!
