According to the latest research by the Freiburg Institute for Musicians’ Medicine (FIM), bassoon playing presents no greater risk of spreading the coronavirus than talking.
New Recruit for our Bassoon Repair Department
We are very pleased to welcome Tristan Lambert to our bassoon repair team this month, July 2020. Tristan has BMus and MMus degrees in modern bassoon performance from the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada) and is just completing an MMus in Historic Bassoon performance from the Royal College of Music in London.
Re-finishing a Püchner bassoon
The Püchner bassoon in the photo has been with its current owner for 50 years. During these last 50 years, as you would expect from a well-loved, well-played instrument, the varnish and colour had naturally worn, to an extent which could have caused harm to the wood if it were not restored. In order to preserve the bassoon, the owner asked us to re-finish it.
Music and the Meaning of Life
Music, out of all human activities, has probably brought more meaning and value to people’s lives, across all cultures and historical periods, than just about anything else. If music-making brings us the best that music can offer, how can we introduce it into our lives?
Customer care is our top priority and we work hard to provide a friendly, professional service. Our expert staff have detailed knowledge of all the instruments in stock and can offer pre- and post-sales advice.
