Gubaidulina’s Duo Sonata for Bassoon and Baritone Saxophone

On October 21st I had the pleasure of performing Sofia Gubaidulina’s Duo Sonata, originally for two bassoons, with my UNCSA colleague Taimur Sullivan on Bari Sax. The piece works surprisingly well for this combination and I highly recommend it when planning a program with saxophone. There is a popular edition available for two baritone saxophones and playing from either part using this edition works well with only a few minor adjustments. The performance took place in Watson Music Hall on the UNCSA campus.
