Bourdeau – Premier Solo

Eugène Bourdeau (1850-1925) was a great bassoonist who came from a family of prize-winning bassoonists.  He would eventually become the bassoon professor at the Paris Conservatoire and the first bassoonist of the Opera-Comique.  He is most known for his composition, Premier Solo, which has become a staple of the standard bassoon repertoire ever since it was used as the Solo de Concours for the Paris Conservatoire in 1894. From a solo bassoon recital in Toronto, ON, I am joined alongside pianist, Rachael Kerr, playing Romance.
