The Yale School of Music presents Bassoonarama, a recital by the Yale School of Music bassoon studio, on Monday, December 9, 2013 at 7 pm.

The recital takes place at Sudler Recital Hall in William L. Harkness Hall (100 Wall St., New Haven, adjacent to Sprague Hall).

The program opens with Julius Fučik’s Entry of the Gladiators. A parade of tangos will follow: Tango Suite by Astor Piazzolla, Tango for Three Bassoons by Manuel Martinez, and Last Tango in Bayreuth by Peter Schickele.

The students will then perform The Grouchy Old Bear, another piece by Fučik. The event concludes with jazz and holiday tunes for the winter season.

The performers are students of Frank Morelli in the bassoon studio at the Yale School of Music.

The recital is free and open to the public; no tickets are required. For more information, call the Yale School of Music concert office at 203 432-4158 or visit music.yale.edu.

The Tango for 3 bassoons was composed by Mike Norris (U.K.)in 1981 and not by the mythical Manual Martinez. The copyright is now with its present publisher Hop Vine Music (U.K.)
