Notes & Reviews:

The wait has been well worth-while! The Gurzenich Bassoon Quintet is now finally presenting the long-awaited fourth part of its series featuring original compositions and arrangements for this extremely rare formation. The Gurzenich Bassoon Quintet was founded as a chamber ensemble of Cologne's Gurzenich Orchestra. The first three Fagottissima recordings on MDG earned the ensemble such great renown that other large bassoon ensembles have gone on to be established around the globe. This boom has generated a hectic search for original literature and arrangements.
