Description

This sonata, (op. 24, no. 5 in G minor) by Francois Devienne is one of the classical cornerstone's of the bassoon's sonata repertoire. Technically written in the classical era, this work demonstrates early romantic tendencies, not unlike the style of Schubert or Mendelssohn. Lyrical and lush, while still posing a technical challenge, this work is a worthy addition to any bassoonist's repertoire.

Devienne was a contemporary of W.A. Mozart, but while Mozart's work emerges from the more heavy, German tradition, Devienne's work embraces the light and delicate quality of French woodwind playing. Devienne, though he was the professor of flute at the Paris Conservatory, was also a bassoonist in the Paris Opera, and a prolific composer in numerous genres.
