Bernhard Henrik Crusell (1775-1838) is the best-known Finnish composer of the Classical period. He lived in Stocholm from 1791 onwards and played the clarinet at the Hovkapellet court orchestra. He also gained reputation as a soloist. He wrote a considerable amount of chamber music especially for his own instrument. Crusell wrote this Concertino for bassoon in 1829 for his son-in-law Franz Preumayr who was considered Sweden's foremost bassoonists at the time. The work was premiered in Stockholm before Preumayr took in on tour in Europe. The solo part is virtuosic and the whole range of the instrument is used effectively with brilliance. This piano score published in the Documenta musicae Fennicae series (No. XX) and it is edited by Harri Ahmas.
