Cortopia’s Down the Rabbit Hole wraps with the anonymous adventurer confronting the Queen of Hearts at her birthday party. This week’s music accompanies the showdown.
My concept for the score was something celebratory, but evocative of the Queen’s ornery persona. For the latter, I used the contrabassoon, the bassoon’s larger sibling, who here periodically intrudes upon the regal strains of the strings and harpsichord.
