Elgar – Romance

Edward Elgar, a bassoonist himself who played in a woodwind quintet with his brother and friends, composed Romance for bassoon and orchestra. Romance, a short musical interlude, was composed for the Principal Bassoonist of the London Symphony Orchestra, Edwin F James, who gave the first performance in February 1911 at Hereford, with the composer conducting. From a solo bassoon recital in Toronto, ON, I am joined alongside pianist, Rachael Kerr, playing Romance.
