Wind in the Reeds for Bassoon/Baritone Saxophone and Piano
From the Publisher
The bassoon solo, Wind in the Reeds, was commissioned by Deena Draycott in memory of John Watson, an army bandsman, teacher and bassoonist; it is both a tribute and lasting memorial to John. The piece is largely pastoral in nature, evoking images conjured up by the ‘play on words’ in the title, but includes a faster central section which exploits other aspects of the character of the bassoon. Transitions between the various sections of the piece are achieved through a series of accompanied cadenzas for the soloist. Also suitable as a solo for baritone saxophone (solo part included).
Performance duration (approx): 6'50
