Notes & Reviews:

For a bassoonist in his formative years, the music of Francois Devienne is almost a must. The many works of this virtuoso bassoonist and flutist contain impressive technical challenges and it is with great satisfaction that the student eventually overcomes these difficulties, which must have seemed nearly insurmountable in Devienne's time. Works for wind instrument and string trio abound in Devienne's output, as with many composer-virtuosos of the time, but his Op. 73 is probably the finest music of its kind for the bassoon. Very little is known of Devienne's life, though he was the victim of many twists and turns of fate, and he died prematurely in an insane asylum (at the same time as the Marquis de Sade!) Happily, his music lives on.
