Notes & Reviews:

"The six sonatas are wonderful little gems of music. The fourth one is my favorite, partly because it is in B-flat, a particularly resonant key for the bassoon, not to mention that there is the treat of a low B-flat from the contra at the end. I enjoy hearing musicians who are enjoying themselves, making music and taking liberties with it. They make each of these sonatas their own... The music of Corrette is comical, energetic and beautiful. This is a very enjoyable recording... "-American Record Guide
