About the album

Dedicated entirely to the baroque bassoon The Elegant Bassoon features a rich variety of repertoire dating from the earliest days of the instrument’s existence, until the period in which the classical bassoon took over.
Bassoonist Wouter Verschuren and Concerto Delaborde here present the instrument in exciting unusual ensembles, like bassoon and traverso or viola da gamba. The reason that these combinations of instruments were not used often in the past, lies in the fact that traverso and viola da gamba favor keys with sharps, such as D major, whereas the bassoon favors keys with flats, like F major. This album contains 6 world premiere recordings.
