Learning outcomes of the course unit

At both levels of Bassoon play - technical and performance, the highest levels of challenge in performance and precision are applied. Etudes are the most challenging in technique, rhythm, intonation, embouchure and breathing. Recital pieces present great demannds on the student level not only technically but in interpretation as well.

Mode of study

Continuing participation in symphony and opera orchestra auditions.

Prerequisites and co-requisites

Instrument skills at the level corresponding to study year and student profile.

Course contents

This course provides students with technique, tone quality, intonation and performance skills to stand up well in competition in soloist, chamber and orchestral music fields. This guides the students to independence and to realize and defend their own ideas. The final bachelor's course lies entirely in the direction of the bachelor's graduation concert and the finalization of the diploma thesis to the final draft. Etudes are selected to enable the study of the selected bachelor's repertoire. Most are of the most challenging - Pivoňka and Milde Oubradous. In the technical and recital aspects the greatest attention is given to execution and precision. Recital pieces correspond as well to the repertoire of the graduation concert but attention is focused on some compositions or styles which have not, during study, been sufficiently practiced. Recitals by Hindemith, Spisak, Teml, Šestak.
