Notes & Reviews:

Simon Van Holen releases a rare disc of beautiful music devoted to bassoon and contrabassoon with Challenge Classics. Van Holen is a contrabassoonist of Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, he's considered a world=beater for sheer virtuosity and singing ability. Accompanied by his fellow RCO members, this release is a stunningly and unexpectedly enjoyable release.
