Notes & Reviews:

Estonian born bassoon virtuoso, Martin Kuuskmann is a commanding force bent on redefining the bassoon as a top caliber solo instrument. His charismatic and entertaining performances throughout the world have earned him repute as one of the leading young instrumentalists around. Anthony Tomassini of the New York Times praised Kuuskmann's playing as "dynamic... amazing... gripping..." and in 2007 he received a Grammy Nomination for his recording of David Chesky's bassoon concerto. Martin Kuuskmann is on faculty at the Manhattan School of Music Contemporary Performance Program.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
It is a wonderful variety of music that shows the very broad spectrum of styles the bassoonist is now capable of playing.
