If you are looking for a fresh and entertaining method that effectively deals with difficult audition pieces, this is it. Pascal Gallois, bassoon soloist, member of the Ensemble Intercontemporain

This wonderful set of 20 Orchestral Studies features a very clever and creative approach to learning these famous excerpts. They can be studied in a innovative and enjoyable way rather than simple and traditional repetition.
Daniel Matsukawa, principal bassoon, The Philadelphia Orchestra

I find these studies very practical and innovative. They instantly found its place as a major element in my coaching of orchestral excerpts.
Daniel Mazaki, principal bassoon, Israel Philarmonic Orchestra

These studies offer an enjoyable way to work on several of the most important orchestral bassoon parts and excerpts found on virtually every orchestral audition.
Frank Morelli, member of the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and the Windscape quintet

The studies are very good and look like an interesting alternative to whatever is already written .
Gustavo Nuñez, principal bassoon, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra

Mastering the most often-found excerpts is essential, and these etudes are a valuable entry into the most challenging points of each excerpt, giving a natural and very practical means to solve the complexities of each.
Jesse Read, bassoon soloist and conductor

"20 Studies on Essential Orchestra excerpts" for bassoonists are very fine and skilled compositions indeed. I predict they will hold the attention of players because of their musicality and, happily, they are just the right length.
Christopher Weait, bassoonist, composer, conductor and publisher

The 20 Studies cover many of the excerpts demanded at auditions (Probespiele) and to my knowledge author's approach to these famous bassoon solos is quite unique. Anyone working for a place in an orchestra should welcome these as they will provide an excellent way to improve the necessary techniques for each solo without endlessly playing it as written by the composer. This would mean that on returning to the original, the problems will have disappeared. What is more, each study is a good solo piece and would be perfect as an encore after a recital.
