Weait - Duets for New Bassoonists, Volume 1

Performing score for No. 1 Getting Started from Weait - Duets for New Bassoonists, Volume 1
SKU: [1609]

Both parts of these duets have notes in the octave between low F (F2) and open F (F3). The parts are co-equal so one part is not “easier” than the other. Rhythms for the entire volume are restricted to whole, half, quarter and eighth notes. The only dotted notes are dotted half notes. Two dynamics are introduced in No. 4: f (forte) and mf (mezzo forte). The duets are dedicated to C. J Broadhead, New Rochelle High School’s memorable choir director.
