Any attempt at a review of compositions devoted to the bassoon, will inevitably reveal how few of them there are, despite the fact that, in our century, greater exploration of the possibilites of this instrument has led to an increase ia a repertoire which is fundamentally very limited. On the other hand, the many technical improvements have resulted in the bassoon's icreased participation in ensemble chamber compositions, frequently accompanied by the piano. In addition to compositions originaly conceived for piano and bassoon, this release includes, in the second half, trascriptions of compositions originally written for variously formed ensemble, which have contributed to the extension of the repertoire, at the same time exploiting to the full many possibilites offered by these instruments. The works are performed here by Stefano Canuti and Massimo Somenzi, two of Italy's most sought-after bassonists.
