David McGill:

Mozart Bassoon Concerto.

Milde Etudes. Numbers #5, #9 and #15

As for excerpts, any excerpts people would wish to play are fine by me. Perhaps even excerpts covered by others would be interesting to do so that people can hear about our different interpretations.


Andrew Cuneo:

THE Problem here… I can only print snippets of some of these excerpts in the tour book for you all… but there just happens to be some links listed. I don’t know what you do with your own computers and printers… As always Solo and Etude books are on your own. The Music Source = Ask TD for stuff.
