In Your Neighbourhood Baroque Bassoon
6.30pm, Tuesday 24 September
Takapuna Methodist Church
Featuring Ingrid Hagan, Principal Bassoon
Vivaldi Bassoon Concerti
Usually used to reinforce the bass of the orchestra, this In Your Neighbourhood concert brings the bassoon to the centre stage.
APO Section Principal Bassoon Ingrid Hagan leads a group of fellow musicians through the best of Vivaldi’s concerti for woodwind.
The bassoon is a fascinating instrument that was not widely used in orchestras until the 17th century. Baroque composers were in hot demand writing solo and ensemble pieces for the instrument.
