Bassoon concertos in London - Spring bassoon fever!

Well, it must be Spring at last as there are bassoon solo concerts springing up all over the place this season!

Meyrick Alexander is playing the Weber Andante and Hungarian Rondo next week at St John's Smiths Square 

You can read more about Meyrick here

Then there is the Royal Academy Bassoon Ensemble doing their thing on 24th April listing here

And the day after if you can get to Oxford for 25th April Karen Geoghegan is playing the Weber concerto with the Oxford Sinfonia
conducted by Mark Fitzgerald - a busy weekend for Karen!

Then next month on 25th May Adam Mackenzie is playing the Mozart Concerto at St Martin-in-the-Fields with the Brandenburg Sinfonia conducted by Bob Porter. Info here

There is a nice biog for Adam here
(The picture at the top is of Meyrick though just to confuse you).

Bob Porter is also conducting a Baroque concert featuring a Vivaldi bassoon concerto with Charlotte Cox playing the A minor concerto on 12th May.

Whilst linking and promoting these I was contacted by and I was sent another really useful link to find concerts - here
Click on "all bassoons" at the bottom of the first list to see what everyone is up to.
