Description A continuation of previous method, this set offers 20 short but demanding studies on popular orchestral excerpts.

Based on orchestral pieces by Mozart, Rossini, Haydn, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Bizet, Wagner, Tchaikovsky, Verdi, Dukas, Strauss, Bartok, Strauss, Mascagni and Stravinsky.

Useful to get back into shape, improve the technique and prepare yourself for an audition. You can also play them as solo pieces for encore or at recital

"... to my knowledge author's approach to these famous bassoon solos is quite unique. Anyone working for a place in an orchestra should welcome these as they will provide an excellent way to improve the necessary techniques for each solo without endlessly playing it as written by the composer. This would mean that on returning to the original, the problems will have disappeared. What is more, each study is a good solo piece and would be perfect as an encore after a recital"
