A highly versatile musician, bassoonist Matthew Morris has performed in numerous festivals, recital and chamber music series, and orchestral performances, as well as on radio and television broadcasts and in studio and commercial recordings. He is on the faculty at Ohio University.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Some of this music is new. Overall, the music is tuneful and melodic. Matthew Morris's rich sound and nice sense of line are used to good effect here.

He is very convincing on every track. Both pianists Christopher Fisher and Youmee Kim are excellent collaborators. With compositional styles ranging from Saint-Saens, Hindemith, and Poulenc to Schoenberg, this is a very satisfying compilation of less-known and well-written bassoon pieces. This should be of special interest to bassoonists looking for something different in their repertoire.
