||bassoon, 2 trumpets (B♭ or C)
The piece was written for a music festival in Dornach, Switzerland. It is a one-movement overture for this unlikely combination, which was what was available. One hopes that the bassoon can hold its own against the brighter brass. I found this combination somewhat droll, and believe the music reflects that. For all that, it is a carefully composed and quite demanding piece.
