Cape Moon Solo for Bassoon and Piano
Cape Moon 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 SmartMusic accompaniment file, a piano accompaniment MP3, and a brief description of the solo.
Audio recordings are available on the MRNS Music Channel on YouTube.
Description: “Cape Moon” was inspired by viewing a full moon over the dunes on the ocean side of Truro, Massachusetts. This lyrical solo is designed to be an easy introduction to 3/4 time and slurring technique.
