Concerto #4 Op 83-BSN/PN
Composer: Bruns, Victor
Publisher: Hofmeister (Germany)
for bassoon and piano
by Victor Bruns (1904-1996)- German composer and bassoonist
Bruns' style, which has its roots in the Russian traditions with which he grew up, is musical through and through; the musical ideas teem with cheerful invention- flowering cantilena motifs dominate, together with a pregnant rhythmic inventiveness that is never obscure. The concerto displays especial charm, the demanding virtuosic solo parts of which- above all, of course, those for bassoon- are always well-conceived for their instrument and never rely on a superficial straining for effect.
Orchestral material is available for rental from the publisher.
