"Editor's Choice. A young player commands attention in four concertos."
- Gramophone

"Five Stars ... sound is exceptionally well balanced ... admirably fresh of orchestral textures ... the bassoon stands out with almost three-dimensional clarity."
- BBC Music Magazine

Young Scottish bassoonist Karen Geoghegan displays expressive maturity and sensitivity on this recording of repertoire at the cornerstone of the bassoon repertoire, including Mozart's Bassoon Concerto, of course, as well as less familiar but distinguished pieces by Kreutzer and Crusell. The programme, performed by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra under Gianandrea Noseda, is rounded out with Rossini’s Bassoon Concerto, completely unknown until relatively recently. It was only in the early 1990s that it came to light among a 19th century collection of manuscripts that had been archived in a library in Italy.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
