Sergio Azzolini introduces himself at Capriccio with this collection of bassoon concertos from the 1930's to the 1970's. This Italian bassoon virtuoso is the director of the Chamber Academy Potsdam who joins him in carrying out this program. The four works recorded show the different aspects that contemporary composers utilised to plumb the depths of this low wind instrument that often enough is merely seen as clownish.
