Bassoonist, composer, teacher and musicologist

Welcome to my page!

Being a professional bassoon player and teacher, I am very interested in expanding and enriching its repertoire. There are different ways to do this.  As a performer, I am trying to shed some light on forgotten or less-known works for my instrument. I also ask modern composers to write something new from time to time. But the temptation to write something myself was even stronger so I started to compose music for bassoon

Since 2008, I closely collaborate with Accolade Verlag publishing company in Germany and have several titles of solo and chamber music for bassoon published via them. You can see a full list of my publications here:


Nevertheless, there always are some unpublished (or to be published later but not yet copyrighted) works so I decided to gather them here and make them available for downloading.

Here you can download various pieces for bassoon of different difficulty, among them - works for bassoon solo, cadenzas for bassoon concertos and chamber music.  I will keep this page regularly updated. You can also visit my profile on Youtube (more than 200 videos!)
