3 Duos Op.17
Instrumentation: Flute and Bassoon or Cello
A French composer of the late 18th and early 19th century, he was also an oboist and violinist. The virtuoso style of the bassoon part may have been aimed at his younger brother, a bassoonist and professor. These duos display Gebauer's deep understanding of the development and techinques of wind instruments, deftly combining the German style with the French taste.
