    What fun or non-serious pieces for bassoon (and any other instrument) have you played?

    I performed the PDQ Bach Sonata Abassoonata (for bassoon and piano played by the same person) last year. It was fun, but pretty hard too.

    Professor Emeritus Chris Weait (Ohio State University) has arranged some wonderful pieces for a variety of wind and double-reed ensembles. I’ve played his “6 Children’s Songs” for double-reed quartet and “Ten By Three” a series of folksongs from Canada for bassoon, oboe and piano. They are all a delight, fairly easy to play and fun for the audience too.

    If you like PDQ Bach and want to do another, there is the Dutch Suite for Tuba and Bassoon and it is not too difficult–not corny fun but kind of cute fun with a movement like the Pink Panther. Kent
