Notes and Editorial Reviews

The bassoon can do a lot of things, growl or wail like an animal, deliver pathos or comedy, pin down the bassline in an ensemble or utter the unearthly soprano solo that opens 'The Rite of Spring.' But when used as a solo instrument, it usually gets somber songs to sing, and most of the composers selected by Italian bassoonist Paolo Cardini have responded to the pensive, rainy day aspect of the muse. Cardini is especially good at projecting an almost vocal melancholy in such pieces as the 'Due Tramonti' of Ludovico Einaudi or the cool, bluesy 'Lamento per il Mio Fiore Perduto' of Giancarlo Cardini, one of the discs highlights, and he actually does croon and moan into it in his interpretation of Sylvano Bussoti's flexibly scored 'Solo,' but Read more when called for a mad scamper or a ghostly overtone honk, such as in Gaetano Giani-Luporini's 'Ludo,' he is equally up to the task.
