“Gabriel Pierné (1863-1937) was a French composer; conductor and organist. Despite being predominantly remembered as a conductor; his Concert Solo remains a recognised piece in the Bassoon repertoire. Pierné studied at the Paris Conservatoire before taking up the position of chief conductor for the concert series; Concerts Colonne in 1910. He remained in the post until 1933; and during this time; he notably conducted the world premiere of Igor Stravinsky's The Firebird. Pierné composed for a variety of instruments; Concert Solo for Bassoon being one of four solo works by the composer. This Pierné piece for Bassoon contains many characteristics typical of the French style; such as significant tempo changes and performance directions; flourishes of semiquavers; chromaticism and many alterations in dynamics. Concert Solo is a varied piece essential to the repertoire of aspiring bassoonists.”
