Peter Whelan - Mozart's Bassoon. Works for Solo Bassoon - Gramophone

Whelan extracts maximum characterisation from the music emphasising its playfulness, tugging gently at the pulse. Whelan offers an all-Mozart programme, the Sonata, K292, for bassoon and bass instrument - here expanded into a quasi-improvised piano accompaniment by Kristian Bezuidenhout - and a gripping reading of the C minor Serenade, K388, complete with bassoon fireworks in the finale and some fabulous natural horn-playing.
