The Count of Truro Solo for Bassoon and Piano
The Count of Truro is a solo for Bassoon and Piano from the collection Scenes from the Cape. This collection is dedicated to my brother, Jerry Nelson, who was a musician and puppeteer with the Muppets.
This MRNS Music Digital Download will include the Bassoon and Piano parts, a brief description of the solo, SmartMusic accompaniment files, and an MP3 accompaniment file.
Audio recordings of the trumpet version are available on the MRNS Music Channel on YouTube.
Description: This solo is named for my brother’s most famous Muppet character, Count Von Count, from Sesame Street. This piece is meant to be a processional, so it should be performed in a slow march style. Note the optional notes at the end.
