wrote 37 bassoon concerti. 37! And hundreds for violin.
How many for keyboard? Two.
Oh well. I suppose pianists really have no right to feel neglected by composers. I do not expect anyone to pity us. (I really do love Vivaldi though.)
Hats off to the Amherst Symphony for a great show last night -- one of those Vivaldi bassoon concerti, a satisfyingly dramatic interpretation of Beethoven's fifth symphony, and Robert Flynn was a real stunner in the Weber clarinet concerto.
