This collection of concertos showcases the musicianship of bassoonist, George Sakakeeney. Two of the concertos were written for him: Peter Schieckele's Concerto for Bassoon and Orchestra (1998) and Libby Larsen's full moon in the city (2013). This album also includes two other concertos not previously recorded. The four concertos showcase Sakakeeney's talents through their diversity of style and emotion.
