Sergio Azzolini (bassoon)
Parnassi musici (on period instruments)

The members of Parnassi musici are a period instrument ensemble renowned for their historical performance practice. For this CD of trio sonatas by Bohemian conductor Johann Georg Neruda (c.1707-c.1780) they give their own unique interpretation and are joined by Sergio Azzolini for the Bassoon concerto playing an original baroque bassoon.

The trio sonata is made up of short motifs, transformed and repeated together with the animated theme at the beginning on each sonata, a trademark of the galant style he used throughout his compositions, a style also prevalent throughout the bassoon concerto.

“The performances by Parnassi musici are accomplished and idiomatic, and their outing is very well recorded by CPO.” Fanfare on a previous CPO release
