The bassoon, its history, its repertoire, the didactics, the research. The LowBb Bassoon Cluster proposes the bassoon repertoire through original compositions and re-ela-borations for bassoon ensemble, working alongside contemporary composers to broaden the repertoire for this splendid instrument. While constantly searching for new sonorities, the group also places great attention on tradition and the past thanks to their experience gained through the study of performing practice on historic instruments. The LowBb Bassoon Cluster regularly holds international master classes focusing on many aspects of the instrument and its repertoire. Four teachers that contemporaneously offer their pupils lessons on their different specialties. On this release, the main point of research is the development of the repertoire for ensemble with the inclusion of one of the smallest members of the bassoon family, the Fagottino. It is no coincidence that this project is concurrent with the research being carried out by the Schola Cantorum in Basel on the rediscovery of the historical role of the Fagottino. The organological study and the rediscovery of its repertoire prompted us to promote new compositions that exploit this extraordinary instrument as soloist and free it from its mere didactic use.
