  10. Bassoon Duets from Orchestral Excerpts Vol. 1

    Composer: Various Arranger: Simpson, Peter
    Instrumentation: Duet Instruments: Bassoon
    Genre: Classical

    These duos are designed to provide an enjoyable and pedagogically sound context in the study of orchestral excerpts for bassoon. By learning both parts of the duets, you should develop a better sense of the harmonies and rhythms that are present in other parts of the orchestra. Each piece is designed to have clear beginnings, endings, and transitions so that the arrangement feels like a short piece, rather than a collection of disjointed excerpts. In order to accomplish this, I have added and modified some material based on the original orchestral parts.

    Volume 1 contains music that is fairly technically accessible, while Volume 2 is considerably more challenging. If your goal is to use these duos to help familiarize yourself with these excerpts before you have all the technical skills needed, then you may try starting with some of the easier accompaniments or try simplifying some of the solos by changing tempos, octaves, articulations, etc.

    Duets included:

  12. Bassoonisms

    Composer: Buss, Howard J.
    Instrumentation: Quartet Instruments: Bassoon
    Genre: Contemporary
    The titles of its 3 movements, "Basslets," "Moonstruck," and "Festoons," are derived in part from the spelling of the word “bassoon.” In addition to musically capturing qualities of the subjects of the titles, they also explore musical characteristics unique to the bassoon. Basslets are tiny, elegant and colorful tropical fish that when observed in large groups create a mesmerizing effect as they flit about. The word “moonstruck” refers to the condition of being out of character due to being in love. Festoons are decorative garlands of flowers, ribbons, lights, or other objects hung in a draped fashion. Score and parts are included. Learn More

  14. Chocolates

    Composer: Grant, James
    Instrumentation: Solo and Piano Instruments: Bassoon, Piano
    Genre: Contemporary

    with Piano

    James Grant says, ” Slow jazz… What musical language could celebrate more appropriately the lyrical, sensuous, expressive character of the bassoon? The three Chocolates, in this version for bassoon and piano, are torch songs in the tradition of the passionate, tuneful ballads of the American 40s and 50s. The first two Chocolates, Valentine and Bittersweet, offer soulful narratives that speak to devotion, poignancy, romance, uncertainty, longing. The third Chocolate, Triple Mocha Indulgence, is slightly less soul-searching, more ebullient, and progressively becomes more animated (a sugar high, perhaps?) right up to its raucous close. Chocolates was commissioned and premiered in 1998 by violist Michelle LaCourse, to whom this music is dedicated.”

    Chocolates can be heard on bassoonist Mary Stuckemeyer’s CD of the same title, published through Potenza Music.

  18. Concerto in A Major, K. 622

    Composer: Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus Arranger: Yang, Myles Mingyuan
    Instrumentation: Solo and Piano Instruments: Bassoon, Piano
    Genre: Classical

    with Piano

    Mozart – Concerto in A major for Clarinet and Orchestra, arranged and edited for Bassoon by Myles Mingyuan Yang.

    The piano reduction is based on Henri Kling’s edition which was published by Leipzig: Breitkopf und Hartel, n.d. (ca. 1883). Plate 16273. The arrangement is kept in the original key for bassoon players to better know the original work. Using the original key will also help students find piano collaborators. The bassoon part in this edition is transposed and edited by Myles Mingyuan Yang from traditional clarinet practice. Some phrases have been modified to better suit the bassoon. Some dynamic markings have been added and edited in the solo part by the editor. Grace notes before trills have been omitted so performers can choose for themselves to either start on the upper auxiliary or lower auxiliary. The piano reduction has been modified to keep the chord relationship and better fit with the bassoon texture via octave displacement in certain sections to keep the appropriate harmonic relationship of the bassoon line. Cross staff chords are rearranged to stay in the same system with clef changes. Some dynamic markings and articulations in the piano reduction have been modified to enhance balance and match articulation with the bassoon.

    Suggested articulations and dynamics have been added by the editor. Bowing marks are occasionally added to help with showing motive shapes. Suggested fingerings have been provided in the practice notes on pages 1 and 2, but they may not work on every bassoon. Finger names are indicated by Left/Right hand 1 2 3 4, counting from the index finger to the pinky. Repeated trill fingerings are only listed where they first appear in the music. Some musical passages can be challenging so alternate options are provided in the practice notes. Some alternative interpretations are also marked in the music as Ossia.

  19. Concerto in C Major, K. 314

    Composer: Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus Arranger: Yang, Myles Mingyuan
    Instrumentation: Solo and Piano Instruments: Bassoon, Piano
    Genre: Classical

    with Piano

    The piano reduction is based on Carl Burchard’s flute edition which was published by Leipzig: Breitkopf und Hartel, Plate V.A. 2577. The arrangement is kept in the original key for bassoon players to better know the original work. Using the original key will also help students find piano collaborators. The bassoon part in this edition is transposed and edited by Mingyuan Yang from traditional flute practice. Some phrases have been modified to better suit the bassoon. Some dynamic markings have been added and edited in the solo part by the editor. Grace notes before trills have been omitted so performers can choose for themselves to either start on the upper auxiliary or lower auxiliary. The piano reduction has been modified to keep the chord relationship and better fit with the bassoon texture via octave displacement in certain sections to keep the appropriate harmonic relationship of the bassoon line. Cross staff chords are rearranged to stay in the same system with clef changes. Some dynamic markings and articulations in the piano reduction have been modified to enhance balance and match articulation with the bassoon.

    NOTE: Mozart arranged the music of this concerto in two different keys, C major for oboe and D major for flute, both numbered K. 314. The flute edition is the easier choice for the player who wants to learn and perform this music. The oboe edition is the more challenging of the two because the range is high on bassoon, making it an effective work to show off the top register of the instrument. Conversely, the more accessible bassoon range of the flute edition allows ample opportunity to display lyrical expression.

    Edited for bassoon by Mingyuan Yang.
