‘Most-recorded’ bassoonist dies

The prolific Daniel Smith, who recorded all 37 Vivaldi concertos with the English Chamber Orchestra and I Soloisti di Zagreb, has died in Brooklyn, aged 77.

He was equally active in jazz, big bands and small ensembles. At one point he was known as the Rampal of the Bassoon.

Full appreciation here.
