REVIEW ON VIENNA STRASSE (BASSOONISTS' RATINGS)
Short, charming pieces, including "L'Apres-midi d'un Dinosaur." Limited range, but requires good projection of character and some staccato tonguing in the Polka. Joubert, Claude-Henry. Cinq pièces faciles (Editions Robert Martin) $10.75. Bsn=2. Solo bassoon. The one minute mov'ts. are - Prelude, Petite fugue, Sarabande, Menuet, and Gigue. The work has limited technique and range demands, while retaining musical and rhythmic interest. The Prelude is particularly beautiful.
