Essentials of Bassoon Technique
Based on the Performance Principles of Lewis Hugh Cooper (German System)
by Lewis Hugh Cooper (1920-2007)- American bassoonist and pedagogue
and
Howard Toplansky- American bassoonist
The Essentials of Bassoon Technique is an encyclopedic presentation of bassoon fingerings and their usage, meant to be utilized by teachers, serious advanced students, and artist performers. This book does not contain all possible fingerings for bassoon, but does offer adequate mechanical information to solve the majority of technical, intonation, and sonority problems. Those solutions represent the accumulated technical knowledge acquired during twenty-five years of professional playing and teaching experience. It is hope that , through judicious use of Essentials of Bassoon Technique, future generations of aspiring bassoonists will be able to more quickly traverse the well-worn and sometimes traumatic path of their predecessors.
-Lewis Hugh Cooper and Howard Toplansky
