AP24 – Instrumental – Bassoon, Oboe & Piano

In our mission to introduce people to all the instruments of the classical world, and highlight some of the instruments that don’t get quite as much attention – this year we’re excited to showcase the Bassoon at this year’s festival – an instrument very distinct in both look and sound(!), it’s an important part of the orchestra’s bass section, but doesn’t often get much love as a solo instrument –  despite some amazing music having been written for it!

Featuring music by Madeleine Dring, Francis Poulenc, Camille Saint-Saens performed by musicians of Opera North
