Weber wrote the first version of this work in 1809 for his brother Fritz, a violist, not a bassoonist. Violists still play the Andante and Hungarian Rondo from time to time, but the piece is more commonly heard in its bassoon incarnation from 1813, arranged on request from bassoonist Georg Friedrich Brandt (for whom Weber had already written a full-length concerto).
