32 Intermediate Bassoon Etudes
by John Falcone
From the composer:
"The following etudes were conceived for the advancing bassoon student who has completed at least one year of study. The etudes are short, but compact in that most contain all 12 notes of the chromatic scale, extend through all registers, modulate key at least once, and require expressive, controlled playing. All the etudes are structured using motivic coherency with clearly elaborated phrases which allow adequate breathing opportunities. The general aim was to attack the early difficulties faced by the bassoonist in a complete, fun and musical fashion."
This book also contains a performance edition of "The Young Bassoonist of Hamelin" for solo bassoon and narrator.
