Bach Cello Suite no. 2 Prelude

The first movement of J.S. Bach's Cello Suite number 2. I really enjoy playing through J.S. Bach's music like this and choosing articulation, inflection, and timing nuances that both bring out melodic and harmonic elements I think are the most interesting, and facilitate breathing - something which the cello wouldn't have a problem with. It's very mentally engaging and there are so many variations which can be effective.

Francisco Mignone: Valsa - Chôro

Another waltz from Francisco Mignone's Music for Solo Bassoon - Sixteen Waltzes: Valsa - Chôro. As the title implies, this waltz is in the style of a chôro, a kind of Brazilian street music named after the Portuguese word for lament.

Francisco Mignone: Mistério Waltz

A waltz from Francisco Mignone's Music for Solo Bassoon - Sixteen Waltzes. Mistério... (Quanto amei-a!) - Mystery... (How much I loved her!) - is a piece I've been coming back to for several summers in a row and I've finally made a good recording of it. The set of sixteen waltzes this comes from are great (though often challenging) works for solo bassoon. There are several others that I'd really like to take the time to get as good as this one.
