The Concerto for Bassoon and Chamber Orchestra is a three-movement composition for solo bassoon accompanied by an ensemble of modest proportions. This piece is composed in partial fulfillment of the requirements of the degree Master of Music with a concentration in Composition from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. The Concerto was composed during the 2010-2011 academic year. This paper provides a narrative analysis of the Concerto in terms of the parameters of its musical content, and relationships thereof. In so doing, references are made to related or influential compositions of the last century in respect to genre, style, form, pitch content, rhythm, and orchestration.
