Catalogue Number: 01K035
Label: Ars Produktion
Reference: ARS 38 020
Description: A five-minute orchestral piece of entr'acte music opens this concert of bassoon concertos. The period bassoon really makes clear how difficult and artistic these works were when originally written (and how easy and anodyne they become on a modern instrument). The G minor concerto adds trumpet, drums and bass trombone to the orchestra, producing a dark, powerful sound which amplifies the brooding seriousness of the work. You'll hear Danzi in a whole new way with this disc. Jane Gower (bassoon), Kölner Akademie; Michael Alexander Willens.
