Repertoire Classics for Bassoon is a comprehensive and progressively graded collection of classic solos for bassoon with piano accompaniment. The book contains a fine mix of transcriptions of familiar classics along with solos written specifically for the bassoon. Many of the pieces in this collection are on state contest/festival required music lists and cover performance levels from grade 2 through 4. There is a wide variety of music from all style periods and by some of the greatest composers of all time. As an added bonus, included is a data CD that contains MP3 audio files of the piano accompaniments to make practicing more fun. The data CD also includes all of the piano accompaniment parts for all of the pieces in the collection as printable PDF files. This way you can print out only the piece that you are using this year for your piano player. This innovative and unique packaging allows Carl Fischer Music the ability to present to you a large and useful collection of solo literature at a very good price. It is a collection that you will use for many years to come.
In putting together a collection of this type, the main goal was to create a collection of solo literature that is musically satisfying at every stage of technical and musical development. In choosing the selections for this book, pieces were considered on their melodic interest, stylistic diversity and their use as a teaching tool. The intention was also to include compositions from great masters and to add significantly to the repertoire for solo bassoon and piano. The solos have been carefully edited to place them in the best keys for the instrument and stylistic markings have been added which will make the solos more idiomatic for the bassoon, which will aid in the successful performance of these works. A secondary goal of this collection is to provide solos in a variety of difficulty levels so that the book will serve the student of the bassoon for many years of study. It is hoped that this collection will stimulate the musical grow of the student and help in their overall development for many, many years to come.
