Throwback Thursday ~ me and my bassoon
when marching, I played a glockenspiel rather than the bassoon and wore a shako with a white plume. (A shako is a tall hat, for you non-band folks.) When I played in the Chattanooga Youth Symphony we wore something else entirely.
Here's my favorite bassoon music, though I never played it. Mozart's Bassoon Concerto was played in live concert in Vicenza, Italy, with Aligi Voltan on bassoon and G.B.Rigon conducting the Orchestra del Teatro Olimpico di Vicenza in June 2004. If the video quits responding, listen to it on YouTube (16:49).
