Once addressed as the ‘Clown of the Orchestra’, the Bassoon has an exciting history, glorious present, and a bright future in the world of music. The appearance, the structure, and the sound of the Bassoon make it stand out as unique from all the instruments. It is one of the most essential instruments of the orchestra and serves as the woodwind section’s tenor and bass.
Unlike other woodwinds, a Bassoonist uses all ten fingers to play this instrument. There are multiple fingering techniques to play the bassoon to its full capability. Searching for new fingering combinations to produce different sounds challenges the bassoonists and maintains their excitement levels to master the instrument.
