Topic: NEW Brazilian Bassoon Concerto !!

Dear Bassoon Colleagues -

The late Dan Smith commissioned the Brazilian composer João MacDowell to write a concerto with orchestra for him. He paid for the commission and had lined up several orchestras to premiere the piece, but sadly passed away before he could do this.

João wanted me to get the word out about the finished work, as he'd love for folks to play it. I've included pdfs of the score and mpegs in a dropbox format below. … sj-Ma?dl=0

If any of you (or your friends) would be interested in playing/premiering this concerto, please contact João directly at:

All the Best - Jim
