Chasing the Perfect Reed - Nordic Woodwind Encounter

Our friends at Puchner produced a wonderful and hilarious silent film as a birthday present for bassoonist Magnus Nilsson. We think you'll enjoy it. Please be aware there is some course language (as there often is when trying to make a reed).

And we wanted to let you know more details about the masterclass festival mentioned at the end of the video: the Nordic Woodwind Encounter. Double reed clinicians include Jonathan Small (oboe), Stefano Canuti and Magnus Nilsson (bassoon). This would be a wonderful opportunity to play and study great music with wonderful international musicians in Sweden.
