Johann Friedrich Fasch
He was born near Weimar 1688 and died in Zerbst 1758.
Double-reed instruments played an important role in his œuvre. He wrote several bassoon concerti, at least one sonata for bassoon, and an abundance of other chamber music works containing oboes and bassoons. The work performed today is a lovely, joyful composition for the unusual combination of violin, traverso, bassoon and basso-continuo.
