No, you’ve never heard the bassoon sound quite like this before. Frost faculty artist and bassoonist Gabriel Beavers and Frost dean and pianist Shelly Berg call on their superior technique and varied experiences for Gernot Wolfgang’s and James Lassen’s challenging works, in which the bassoon is treated like a rock guitar. Brett Dietz’s Behold a Pale Horse for amplified bassoon and percussion quartet puts the bassoon through a guitar pedal effects; and Theodor Burkali’s TRaInspOrt is a fiery piece for bassoon and 2 percussion. Also featuring percussionists Andrew Riley and Matthew Nichols, and Hamiruge (LSU Percussion Ensemble).
