5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent performances of enjoyable bassoon repertoire Jan. 3 2013
By I. Giles - Published on Amazon.com
This disc, made in 2001,contains some major bassoon repertoire and complements other recordings made by Laurence Perkins for Hyperion. The recording quality is good with clarity, depth and good balance. The sleeve notes are informative and better than many.

The most familiar work here is the Mozart concerto which is given an immaculately joyful performance in the outer movements and a sensitively lyrical central movement. This is quite the equal of the many alternative fine performances available elsewhere on disc. Weber also wrote a fine bassoon concerto as well as an enjoyable Andante and Rondo Ungarese. This latter does not sound particularly Hungarian but has an attractively bouncy rondo theme. This performance makes use of a newly corrected orchestral parts prepared from original manuscripts by Perkins prior to the recording. The concerto is one of very few bassoon concertos written in the 19th century and is a valuable and lyrical part of that heritage. The Stamitz concerto and Michael Haydn Concertino are not so well established but make for enjoyable, if not so memorable,listening.

This is an excellent disc and capable of comparison with the best. The program is both imaginative and interestingly different from other discs. The Mozart and Weber items are all major parts of the repertoire so if the program appeals I would suggest that this disc merits serious consideration for collectors.

This is difficult music to play and to play it well on a bassoon is wonderful.
