The year 2018 has been denoted the Year of the Bassoon. Today we listened to four selections of Bassoon Music. We listened to:
Fantasia by Paul Doukas
Beethovens Trio in E Flat Major. Opus 38
Selections from Richard Strauss
Selections from Michail Glinka
The Bassoon is an instrument that has developed over the centuries and is not an easy instrument to master. Consequently, there is not a large repertoire of music available or players to play it. What music is available is in high demand and very enjoyable to listen to. As we did this morning.
