Francis Poulenc had planned to write a bassoon sonata, but sadly he didn't get to it before his death. This arrangement of his well-known Flute Sonata, composed in 1957, shows us what a bassoon sonata might have sounded like and makes a great addition to a recital.

The sonata is in three movements (Allegretto malincolico, Cantilena, Presto giocoso) and takes about 12 minutes to perform.

The arrangement follows the original piano part closely, and the bassoon part has been transposed to a comfortable register for the instrument. It is appropriate for advanced students and professionals. The PDF includes the bassoon part and a full score.
