More about this title


A fine short concert work for bassoon and piano, expertly written for the instrument.

What a fabulous piece of music! It is slow and expressive, mainly written in the tenor clef range. However, it goes no higher than top C and has no awkward jumps. It is about grade 6 in standard. It has a beautifully atmospheric piano part that is not too difficult and therefore would be a handy addition to any bassoonist's concert repertoire.
Tom Hardy clearly knows how to write for the bassoon and make it sound good. The tunes are phrased in a very natural way, with slurs in all the right places. The crescendos and diminuendos follow the idiosyncracies of the bassoon and so you can feel very safe making dramatic use of the expression marked.
Well worth investing in.
