Notes & Reviews:

As its title suggests, this recording is a celebration of firsts. Not only is this Mr. Romine's first solo album, but this album also contains many first recordings of music that has languished in obscurity for years, undeserving victims of time, tastes, and fortune. Of the twelve works on this album, eight are true premieres. The remaining four are also firsts, but in slightly different ways: Both the Solal and the Hersant have been recorded, but this will be the first recording to be widely available (though the others are definitely worth seeking out). The d'Ollone already exists on disc but here it receives its first recording on German-system bassoon. And of course, the Pierné has been recorded numerous times. It earns its place on this album by not only being good music, but also because it is the very first work written for the Bassoon Concours when in 1898 the Conservatoire began commissioning non-bassoonists to write the solos.

Dr Romine might as well be writing his own review of his recording. Not only is he the assistant professor of bassoon and theory at Shenandoah Conservatory in Virginia, but also the bassoon editor for the International Double Reed Society's publication, The Double Reed. Dr Romine has done a wonderful job with this album. His students should consider this an ideal framework for structuring their own musical pursuits. Picking a theme or a concept, while more challenging for the research component of a recital requirement, can be much more rewarding and enriching.
