Let’s Talk Bassoon – Episode 5

Two distinguished Canadian bassoonists – Suzanne Nelsen and Samuel Banks – join host Darren Hicks for a webinar discussion about their lives in the bass clef.

In this episode of Let’s Talk Bassoons, NACO Principal Bassoon Darren Hicks hosted Suzanne Nelsen of the Boston Symphony and Samuel Banks of the Toronto Symphony.  Their discussion included a wide range of issues: sound, balance, reeds, excerpts and the complex challenges of playing second bassoon.
