“A lyrically expressive and technically flawless performance by Judith Farmer. Her beautiful, warm tone is immediately appealing … exquisite bassoon playing.”

“Bassoonist Judith Farmer’s album Judith Farmer Plays Favorites goes a long ways to dispel any prejudices the listener might have against the bassoon.”

- Rafael de Acha, Rafael’s Music Notes

“Farmer plays with an excellent tone … a very fine outing for Farmer and a treat for all bassoon-fanciers.”
