Hindemith's 'Very easy pieces for bassoon and violoncello' were created in New Haven, probably between 1941 and 1944. It was particularly in his years of exile that he liked to make music at home with his wife Gertrud who played cello. Hindemith himself accompanied her on various instruments, being known as a skilled bassoonist among others. The old folk song 'Ich lag in einer Nacht und schlief' is performed in six variations, arranged in a chorale-like, humorous or polyphonic manner. The parts are rewarding for both players. First edition based on the Hindemith Complete Edition.
