Going Solo (Bassoon) is a lively collection arranged by Graham Sheen, designed to bridge the gap between music for beginners and more advanced solos Grades 4 to 5 upwards, enabling the young player to face a conductor or an audience with complete confidence.
This selection avoids the easy marches, minuets and sarabands so often seen, and introduces an essentially idiomatic repertoire for the intermediate bassoonist (with piano accompaniment), consisting of transcriptions of famous solos from orchestral masterpieces, alongside arrangements of pieces ranging from the Renaissance to the 20th century.
