Notes and Editorial Reviews

Hanno Donneweg writes of his new release: “For many years, one of my heartfelt desires has been to expand the bassoon repertoire. I think this wonderful instrument deserves to draw on a more extensive body of works. […] The bassoon was very frequently favoured by composers of the Baroque period, but this interest significantly waned during the Romantic era. […] Two years ago, Andreas N. Tarkmann and I teamed up with Coviello to make a recording of solo works for bassoon and orchestra from the German-speaking world. We have now turned our attention to French compositions from the last 150 years.” Hanno Donneweg, born in 1977, took his first bassoon lessons at age nine with Horst Wartha, along with chamber music instruction from Bernd Read more Rimbrecht at the Jugendmusikschule in St. Georgen im Schwarzwald, Germany. Between 1995 and 1998, Donneweg was a member of the National Youth Orchestra of Germany and Jeunesse Musicale International. Since 1999 he has been a scholarship recipient of the Deutschen Musikwettbewerb and a member of the Bundesauswahl Konzerte junger Kunstler. Since August 2002, Donneweg has been solo bassoonist with the Radio Symphony Orchestra Stuttgart. Read less
