Subject: [CB] CD Review

Here's one that got jammed in with all the Christmas CDs (although it isn't particularly Christmassy):

The New York Kammermusiker Double Reed Ensemble "A Baroque Celebration" (1993 Dorian Recordings  DOR-90189).  Unfortunately, nothing in the CD lists the orchestration, but oboes, bassoons and *contrabassoon* are present in abundance.  The tracks are:

Just over an hour of wonderfully done baroque music, with contrabassoon prominent and skillfully employed in nearly everything (not used in a few, like the Trios...).

And now, back to our regularly-scheduled year-end desparate-attempt-to-finish-everything-in-the-office and last-minute-holiday-shopping...
