Bassoon Playing in Perspective is a theoretical study of bassoon performance practice in the first half of the nineteenth century. It combines research on historical written sources with practical experimentation on period instruments. As a result, the conclusions derived from the investigation have ample and immediate practical applications. This research seeks to be a new approach to understanding bassoon performance practice in this historical period and in its relationship with the present-day practice of nineteenth century repertoire. Moreover, it gives some hints that may be used to understand performance practice in a wider context
