Concertino (1999)
for two bassoons and piano
by Allan Stephenson (b. 1949)- English composer, conductor, and cellist
I. Poco lento- Allegro bucolico
II. Andante flessibile
III. Allegro spiritoso
This should be on every concert program featuring 2 bassoons with orchestra (or piano). The second movement is eloquently heart-breakingly beautiful and the outer movements are fun and superbly written (and balanced) for the soloists. This is a winner! Melodic, tuneful, and totally accessible. A new piece that is memorable and that you will want to hear again!
