Sonata for bassoon and piano

I. Molto Moderato

III. Molto vivace

The Bassoon Sonata is one of the last compositions Isaac Mikhnovsky completed before his death in 1978. He was planning to invite maestro Arnold Irchai to give the premiere performance of the sonata with the composer playing the piano. More than 30 years later, the work was premiered at George Mason University with Arnold Irchai playing bassoon and Anna Balakersaia playing piano.
