He began with a traditional F-major suite by Galliard, which opens with a round and graceful largo, followed by a brightly colored allegro, and which includes a rhythmic sicihano, a sprightly and amusing hornpipe and an equally meiry spmtoso movement. It was a good introduction, and Mr. Zukerman subtly exploited the full three-octave-plus range of his instrument. Jorgen Bentzons 1938 variations for unaccompanied bassoon provided a good workout for the artist They demanded a controlled versatility which Mr. Zukerman delivered with deceptive ease It is difficult in an intimate hall such as the Conservatory recital hall, to restrain the piano in a subservient role, particularly to an instrument with as delicate a voice as that of Mr Zukerman's bassoon I11 the Galliard suite and the Hunganan andante and rondo by Carl Maria von Weber, pianist John Partridge of Regina had trouble bridling his style to suit the soloist. There was a much better rapport, however, in the second half of the program, which began with a 1948 Bus-ser duo written as a piece de eoncours which Mr Zukerman quipped was designed to flunk out the entire class " Rather than flunking, however, the guest artist proved his qualifications for sitting at the head of the class, negotiating effortlessly thiough the intricate piece The andante passage from Mozarts Concerto (K 191), suggestive of rich, warm tones of brown and orange, was the emotional delight it should have been Piano and bassoon were in good blend, and the bassoonist achieved a subtle eloquence in a long unaccompanied passage Mr Zukerman described this piece as the most beautiful work ever written for this instrument. Certainly it was the jewel of Fndays recital, after which the Sonata in G-major by Saint Saens, although superbly plaved, seemed almost anti-chmactic Musicologists would reiect Mr Zukeimans statement that the sonata was wntetn in 1923 when Saint-Saens was 95. The most reliable sources indicate the composer died in 1921 at the age of 86 Mr Zukerman showed a number of slides tiacing the development of the instrument, which has been described as a symphonic piece of plumbing," and depicting some of the first music written for it During a decade of research, Mr Zukerman has unearthed over 150 con-certi for the bassoon, seveial of which he is editing for pubhcaLon On Thursday evening, he will give the premiere performance of the Concerto for Bassoon and Stiings, bv Canadian Arthur Poison, with the CBC Winnipeg Oichestia Early next year he will embark on a round-the w orld concert tour which will take him to Moscow as the first bassoon soloist united to play in the Soviet Union.
