Julius Weissenborn was an esteemed 19th century bassoon player and pedogogue, whose compositions and studies are still a major part of a young bassoonists education today.  This piece is part of his "Tone and Performance Studies", of which the publisher offers several other titles including: "Arioso", "Song Without Words", "Elegie", "Humoresque", "Adagio", "Notturno", "Scherzo", "Ballade", "Romance No.1", "Capriccio", and "Romance No. 2".  This selection is a poignant but simple work.
