Bassoon competitors passing to the Round II

The Competition in the BASSOON category has already found out the names of the musicians qualified to perform in ROUND II!

The bassoon players have competed for a place in the next round over the past two days. The compositions performed were Five virtuous inventions composed by Zdeněk Šesták and Sonata B Major KV 292/196c composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
