I particularly like the fact that Michael Grant's bassoon quartets are designed to be played by 3 or 4 bassoons. I'm always in favor of flexibility. If one of your bassoon quartet members forgets about the gig or gets lost on the way, you're fine to proceed with three players.
Michael has arranged some well-known classics for bassoon quartet, including one of my all-time favorites, Henry Purcell's Rondeau from Abdelazar Suite. Also featured is a tune commonly associated with bassoon, sCharles Gounod's Funeral March of the Marionette.
Incidentally, Michael, who is also a clarinetist, has a blog with a great name: "Adventures in Woodwindland". Be sure to check it out.
