The editor believes that this book will help the bassoon student who frequently studies orchestral excerpts without an understanding of the harmonic and rhythmic accomaniment of the orchestra. By playing these excerpts with piano accompaniment they will develop a true perspective.

Because of its innate musicality, Bach's Bourree from the Third Cello Suite can be played without accompaniment.  The excerpt from West Side Story is included because of its contemporary nature and also because Leonard Bernstein used the bassoon to great advantage in this musical comedy.
