This approximately four-minute piece is designed as a novelty piece, which works well either as an encore piece on a larger program, or as an addition to a regular program of bassoon pieces or mixed ensemble pieces.
It features much humor with strong Jazz influence, particularly in the harmonic material. Technical demands are moderate, with only the first bassoon ascending to a high C. It works equally well when played by advanced high school students, college students, or even professional ensembles. All four players are given melodic material and are treated equally in a generally contrapuntal context, punctuated by some cool Jazz harmonies.
The tempo should not be taken too fast but should be played in a relaxed but upbeat manner.
Dr. Dornfinkle, I presume….. was premiered and recorded by the esteemed Breaking Winds Bassoon Ensemble.
