Concerto in G Major-BSN/PN
Composer: Schmittbauer, Joseph Aloys
Concerto in G Major
for bassoon and piano
by Joseph Aloys Schmittbauer (1718-1809)- German composer, Kapellmeister, instrument maker, and teacher
This somewhat unique "concerto" in one movement from a composer who was a contemporary of Mozart and Haydn reflects upon that pre-classical genre. The form of the single movement is predictable and exploits the comfortable range of the solo instrument at that time. It is technically within the reach of everyone from a talented student to amateur and professional.
