Giuseppe Concone was an Italian singing master, pianist and composer who taught in Paris for some ten years. It was there that he wrote and published sets of ' ....melodious and well written ....' exercises, which won worldwide recognition for their value in voice training.
June Emerson, bassoonist, music publisher and editor of this selection of forty of Concone's studies was introduced to them by her erstwhile teacher, William Waterhouse. In the introduction she writes 'These legato studies, with their long phrases, are ideal for developing a good tone on the bassoon. They need full breath support and, to gain most benefit, they should be played quite slowly.' She explains that she has changed much of the phrasing 'to make the studies more bassoon-like than vocal,' but has left a few difficult slurs unaltered as a challenge to the developing player.

  • 40 progressive studies in keys ranging from Db Major/B minor to E Major/C# minor, using a variety of simple and compound time signatures.
