Bassoon Concerto in C major, FWV L:C2
The Bassoon Concerto in C major comprises three movements. The central ‘Largo’ is framed by an ‘Allegro’ on either side, each of whose themes involve scales, arpeggios and trills. Fasch must have been aware of the virtuosic potential of the bassoon at least since his time in Prague; Vivaldi sent Count Morzin scores of concertos for the instrument and his band included the composer Antonín Reichenauer who also wrote solos for bassoon. The surviving materials for this particular work were written in the 1730s or 1740s by Graupner (further evidence of the constant circulation of manuscripts).
