Yesterday’s post of the Mozart bassoon concerto reminded me of the bassoon concerto that I played last year for NYSSMA. This, the Mozart, and the Hummel are my top three favorite concertos to play on bassoon.
Everyone loves Mozart. This is probably one of the most, if not the most quintessential and famous bassoon concerto. The first two movements are the movements that I’ll be performing for NYSSMA tomorrow.
This is the bassoon solo that I’m playing for a solo festival on May 13th: Movement 2 and 3 of Vivaldi’s bassoon concerto in E minor.
