    Does anyone know of a collection of Tenor Arias that could be used with young students to teach Bel Canto style of playing? I’m thinking of having students view various UTube videos of Tenors singing and then having the Bassoon student work on the same aria and imitate the singing style. Thanks

    Try starting with Donizetti’s L Elixir d’Amour – this one with Pavarotti


    Mozart’s Laudate Dominum with Anja Harteros


    Handel’s Scherza Infida with baroque bassoons sharing a drippingly beautiful line with violas at 26 minutes in.

    Neville’s suggestions are excellent. If you haven’t a;ready considered it, I’ve found June Emerson’s edited “The Singing Bassoon”. which is based upon “40 Legato Studies Opus 17” by Giuseppe Concone, the great 19th century singing master.
