The Wooden Broomstick Scherzo in g minor-BSN/PN
Composer: Carlson, Rosalind
Publisher: Phylloscopus Publications (England)
for bassoon and piano
by Rosalind Carlson (b. 1937)-Australian composer
Written in 1998, this piece displays the whimsical character of the scherzo as a musical joke, and is written with great fondness for the bassoon and its timbres. It also recognizes the instrument's potential for comedy and acknowledges a debt to the Sorcerer's Apprentice of Paul Dukas.
