“In Common Ground Wolfgang demonstrates just how attractive the combination of bassoon and cello can be.”

Glyn Pursglove,

“I thoroughly enjoyed reading through this work … there is a limited amount of repertoire specifically for bassoon and cello, and this is a welcome new addition.”

Daniel Lipori, The Double Reed

“Cellist Paula Fehrenbach joined the bassoonist [Judith Farmer] on the intriguing Common Ground , creating a low register agenda. Here again, Mr. Wolfgang’s jazz/soul leanings (he’s a former jazz guitarist) show in the neat network of “riffs”, sometimes layered and sometimes in driving unsion.”

Josef Woodard, Santa Barbara News-Press

” … another wonderful example of his [Gernot Wolfgang's] musical language … its enormous vitality is fascinating.”

Dr. Dietrich and Brigitte Hilkenbach, Oboe-Fagott (GERMANY)
