Historical Bassoons

If you have studied the dates on this website carefully, you will probably have stumbled upon the comment “Baroque bassoon / classical bassoon”. It can sometimes be a great benefit to swap an upper voice for a continuo instrument and assume an entirely different role in the musical context of a piece.

My interest in historical bassoon instruments allows me to be part of larger orchestral projects, such as operas or oratorios – I particularly enjoy this task, which provides a fascinating and welcome change from the more soloistic or more chamber-music oriented usual work of a recorder player.
