Spotlight on Bassoon

Nate Helgeson, bassoon | Monica Huggett, Adam Lamotte, violin | Curtis Daily, violone | Susan Jensen, harpsichord

Monica leads a chamber music program including virtuoso music for baroque bassoon. Why bassoon? Monica calls PBO’s Nate Helgeson, a recent graduate of Juilliard now based in Portland, “one of the pre-eminent period bassoonists of his generation.” They are joined by PBO’s all-star period chamber musicians in music by Telemann and Leclair for the second concert of PBO’s new Chamber Series.
