“Frank Morelli…brings out [the] lyrical nature pleasingly, and his tone is plush [His] playing is a joy to hear.” — GRAMOPHONE
Orpheus member musician, Frank Morelli, provides a unique avenue of visibility for the bassoon which is uncommon among classical music. Bassoon solos from composers Mignone and Villa-Lobos are a favorite of Morelli fans. Also featured on this recording is Benjamin Verdery, guitar, on a piece which was adapted by Morelli from the original Villa-Lobos composition Bachianas Brasileiro for sporano and guitar.
