Bassoon Music

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I have recently picked up the bassoon again, but I no longer have any of my sheet music. So, I figured I would ask what people think are the best sounds featuring the bassoon to look for...other than fantasia.

Welcome back to the bassoon world! You're post confuses me: are you looking for sheet music to play or recordings with bassoon? Or orchestral recordings that have prominent bassoon parts?

Mozart Concerto for Bassoon K191

I've enjoyed "Karen Geoghegan plays Bassoon Concertos" on Chandos. She includes concertos by Hummel, von Weber, Berwald, Jacobi, Elgar and Gershwin.
It's well played and recorded.

My girlfriend played bassoon for years. She says one of her favorites is "Five Sacred Trees" by John Williams.

I wish she'd finally gave to my requests for some "Yakkity Bassoon."

After re reading my post, I realize it is indeed quite ambiguous. My original intention was to get recommendations for fun bassoon sheet music to play. However, my bassoon audio library is also quite small, so I thank those that have posted those as well = D.

Vivaldi Concerto in E Minor. Quite hard as far as I know.

I'm a cellist and I'm just starting out on the bassoon myself.

My girlfriend heard me listening to the Head-Fi/HDtracks album, and her eyes bugged out of her head when she heard some of the bends that the bassoonist applied on the "Concerto for Bassoon and Orchestra: Movement 3" track.

I checked that out too, and I have to say my reaction was much the same...still trying to put the left one back in XD

Does anyone know the composer of that piece? No one can seem to tell me...

EDIT: Found with a bit of digging. For anyone that is interested, it is David Chesky's Concerto for Bassoon and Orchestra (Urban Concerto)
