"The Boulder bassoonists bring a new dimension to the bassoon quartet"

Since 2006, the Boulder Bassoon Quartet has impressed a wide audience through substantive, engaging performances. At home in a variety of venues, the Quartet is dedicated to expanding the repertoire for the bassoon quartet in a variety of genres through new arrangements and original compositions.

The Quartet's first album, From the Opposite Shore, is a showcase of new and inventive music, much of which is Published by Trevco Music.

Called "exemplary in many ways," From the Opposite Shore is an album that "every music library should own."

From classical to pop, chamber concerts to weddings, the Quartet does it all.

As the Denver Post wrote, "Nothing embodies the way classical music is evolving — in positive ways — better than the Boulder Bassoon Quartet."
