How Do I Find Bassoon Music?

If you have a specific piece in mind, you can search by title, author (person/organization/composer), or both in MaagNET. Below are general call number ranges for bassoon music. You can browse the shelves or you can consult MaagNET for a listing of materials by call number. To search by call number in MaagNET, select LC Call Number and enter the beginning of a call number, ex. M249.

Note: Some of the recommended call numbers below contain music that does not include the bassoon. For those, consider limiting the results to "words in subject" = "bassoon" or "words in subject" = "bassoons."
