Lorenzo, the much-travelled clown, is a Venetian glass ornament belonging to the composer, Marcus Blunt. Lorenzo inspired both Blunt's work for bassoon and piano, at the heart of this disc, and a drawing by Frank Bayford, which emerged as a natural focus for a growing collection of chamber works for bassoon. The music of 'The Much-Travel'd Clown' captures the mercurial character of the bassoon: an outwardly cheerful clown who sometimes expresses an inner sadness.
