Program Notes by Jeffrey Beyer:

      One of the lesser-known compositions of Edward Elgar is his Romance, for Bassoon and Orchestra. As an instrument without a great body of repertoire by the most famous composers, it is neat to know that this is the only piece that Edward Elgar composed for a solo wind instrument with orchestra. Composed in 1910 and originally for bassoon and orchestra, the more oft-performed reduction for bassoon and piano is perfectly suitable for performance on the bass flute. In this work, the bassoon takes full advantage of its three-octave range, and while the bass flute technically has a similar range, some adjustments have been made to make the piece a little more comfortable to play. Admittedly, while in the midst of re-engraving the piano score, it was realized that there was simply no way to do justice to such an intricately engraved score. Thus, the decision was made to leave the original (public domain) score intact, and augment it a bit by adding measure numbers that should help facilitate rehearsal and performance.
