Victor Bruns: Music for Bassoon (Eric Stomberg and Friends)
Azica Records ACD-71245
"Eric Stomberg, professor of bassoon at the University of Kansas, has arrived on the scene, and dare I say it's about time. Eric is a fantastic bassoonist... He is accompanied by friends and colleagues Barrick Stees and Jonathan Sherwin of the Cleveland Orchestra, George Sakakeeny of the Oberlin Conservatory and Robert Koenig of UC Santa Barbara."
"Stomberg and friends perform with elegance, refinement and the understanding of wry humor that I think is essential to the bassoonist's temperment. Individually they have impeccable tone and technique, but together they are like one mind-balanced and blended to perfection."
"I recommend this recording, especially if you want to hear great American bassoon playing."
