The unique combination of bassoon and percussion/marimba/vibraphone creates many dark and "woody" colors as suggested by the title of the first movement, "Wood and Wind." This movement explores the lyric qualities of the bassoon in its upper register. The second movement is a rhythmically animated dialog between the percussion and bassoon.
