About the Author

Grammy winning bassoonist, David McGill, has served as principal bassoon of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra since 1997. He has also served as principal of the Cleveland Orchestra, the Toronto Symphony, and the Tulsa Philharmonic. A graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia (1985), he has taught at DePaul and Roosevelt Universities in Chicago, Indiana University, the Cleveland Institute of Music, and the University of Toronto. He has given master classes in Finland, Hungary, and across the United States and Canada.

Reviews

"I do not know if David McGill set out to write a book primarily about bassoon playing, but what he ended up with is a most important, all-encompassing book about music, its nature and its significance, not only for the professional musician, but for all those who see in it an expression of human creation. He deals with the different expressive means of sound, of styles and, perhaps most important of all for the practicing musician: the connection between attitude and aptitude." Daniel Barenboim
