I am down in Carmel and have been for the last three weeks. We are doing a production of La Boheme, however this has been reduced from a full orchestra to a 9 piece pit orchestra! As the bassoon I am covering many of the orchestra parts and I don’t get much as far as rests.
Overall it has been a very fun experience and I hope I get called again for this next year!
I had an idea to start a series of self made video recordings in order to put more material out there. There are many pieces for solo bassoon but also pieces that work well for solo bassoon. Lately I have been very inspired by the Bach cello suites so I’ll be recording a few of them.
