Innovatory if uneven music by a once regarded, now forgotten German-Swiss contemporary of Beethoven’s. A genuine duo, the pioneering Bassoon Sonata is ambitiously and expressively imagined, with Waterhouse, ably partnered, rising nobly to its challenge. Indifferent engineering and editing, however, to Fong’s disadvantage in particular. Ates Orga
