Call Number: ML931 .C37 1999
Publication Date: 1999-09-01
A guide to the history of the four main woodwind instruments of the Baroque: the flute, oboe, recorder and bassoon. Carroll (Baroque and classical bassoon, The Royal College of Music) includes a repertoire list for each instrument and guides readers towards a basic technique for playing these instruments. He also gives advice on buying a suitable reproduction instrument from a market where virtually any Baroque instrument can now be obtained as a faithful copy. Although a certain level of musical literacy is assumed, this volume is appropriate for students, amateurs, and professionals.
