Abstract:
Pierre-Max Dubois (1930-1995) is an important composer of works for the bassoon in the late twentieth century. Steeped in a French tradition that includes Darius Milhaud, Dubois composed music with a sense of humor and precise compositional craft. Throughout his career, Dubois wrote 15 works for solo bassoon and 13 chamber works that include bassoon. This paper is a thorough examination of three representative works by Pierre-Max Dubois, Serenades (1954), Concerto Ironico (1968), and Sonatine-Tango (1984). This paper will demonstrate that Dubois' works for bassoon merit consideration as quality music for bassoon.
