Bassoonist Theo Plath is currently the talk of the town: After winning the 2018 German Music Competition, which awarded him this Primavera Edition prizewinner CD, he also impressed audiences at the 2019 ARD Music Competition. Be it as a soloist, chamber musician, or solo bassoonist with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony, Theo Plath simply thrills his audiences. On his solo debut CD, he combines Romantic bassoon concertos by Carl Maria von Weber and Bernhard Crusell with modern French compositions by Marcel Bitsch and André Jolivet. Accompanied by the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie under the baton of Leo McFall, he lets the broad spectrum of the bassoon's expressive possibilities resound, from melancholic lyricism to witty charm.

"2018 gewann Theo Plath den Deutschen Musikwettbewerb. Für seine Preisträger-CD wählte der junge Fagottist Konzerte, die er mag und mit denen er gut zeigen kann, was auf seinem Instrument alles möglich ist."
