Misc. Comments

Written in 1993 as a quartet for 3 bassoons and double bass, rewritten almost from scratch for 4 bassoons 2017 (old, unpublished version subsequently destroyed)

...and music? Well, ahem, yes.. my apologies for being unfaithful to greedy mistress Language Learning. I spent the weekend transmuting an old quartet into something called "Bassoon Saloon" for four bassoons (and nuttin' else). To get a hint to what it sounds like imagine four classical bassoonists in black frocks sittin' around a wild west campfire with baked beans (and the remains of the guy with the mouth organ) simmerin' in a cauldron and coyotes howlin' somewhere out there in the surrounding wildernessss, happily executing deep wheezing rumbles on their inflected tubular contraptions. THAT's what my latest revised opus is supposed to sound like! (quote from https://forum.language-learners.org/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=1027&p=71950&hilit=bassoon#p71950)
