THE SNEAK for Contrabass Solo

THE SNEAK depicts a big old sneaky guy lurking around in the dark. Spying what he wants to purloin, he makes a go for it and, successful, he scampers away in much the same way in which he first arrived.


THE SNEAK was premiered on April 5th, 2024 in celebration of the 150th anniversary of Serge Koussevitzky's Birth, at Winifred Smith Hall, Claire Trevor Schools of the Arts, University of California at Irvine, by bassist Matt Hare. The concert included works composed by Koussevitzky, dedicated to him, commissioned by the Koussevitzky Foundation. Matt Hare performed on Koussevitzky's personal instrument, on special loan for that recital. The concert was presented in association with the ongoing Fifteen Minutes of Fame concert series of Vox Novus which is headed by Robert Voisey. Information about Matt Hare can be found at:; information about this concert can be found at:
