Per Hannisdal & Vebjørn Anvik

The Lyrical Bassoon Super Audio CDPurchased

This recording features some of the most notable works in the repertoire for bassoon and piano, here played by Per Hannisdal (Principal Bassoon, Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra) and pianist Vebjørn Anvik (Grieg Trio), two of Norway's finest musicians. Most of the pieces were composed in the first half of the 20th century, which was a fruitful time for music for wind instruments, especially in France where the Paris Conservatoire commissioned works (pièces de concours) to be used in examinations. These were often works of high quality and they constitute a significant addition to the repertoire. Two of them, Dutilleux's Sarabande et Cortège and Tansman's Sonatine, are represented in this album, which also features music composed by Hindemith, Saint-Saëns, Elgar, Koechlin and Kvandal.
