ROMANCE & CAPRICE
Works for Solo Bassoon and Piano
FRANK MORELLI, bassoon
GILBERT KALISH, piano
"Morelli's sensitive, robust and warm sound, and Gilbert Kalish's very fine piano breathe life and passion into these works. This is music that holds appeal to a wider audience than bassoonists or wind afficionados. I think while we wait for Frank Morelli to make another record we can all thoroughly enjoy this one.
