LOVING this arrangement of the Saint-Saëns Bassoon Sonata, arranged and played by Scott Hostetler. I’m so in awe … the man plays piano as well as double reeds, and he’s so musical. Bravo!

This is an arrangement of La Mer by Emily Tsai. It’s quite astounding what she has done, and I am pretty sure this must have taken EONS to put together! Brava to Ms. Tsai!

From her YouTube page:
La Mer – De l’aube à midi sur la mer
The Sea – From Dawn Til Noon on the Sea
for Oboe Choir/Double Reed Choir
by Claude Debussy
arranged and performed by Emily Tsai

This was definitely a passion project of mine as La Mer is my all time favorite piece of music. I miss playing with my chamber groups, I miss playing in orchestra, and I miss all of my oboe friends, so I arranged this as something that could combine all of the above and pull out all the stops! However, the next arrangement I do, I will recruit said oboe friends as well as some bassoon friends because that bass oboe, while making me feel powerful to play so low, was a FRUSTRATING beast! I hope to someday be able to perform this live with other double reeders and replace those bass oboes with the far superior bassoon!
