The Rite of Spring
“In the opening solo of this work, the highest register of the bassoon is used in an exposed and lyrical way that was never heard before 1913. Today, it’s thrilling to attempt to recreate the purity, sublimity, and quivering mystery in this gorgeous musical line.” –Dávid A. Nagy, bassoon
