Look how many of these titles are studies, methods, or orchestral
excerpts.  I'm not aware of any bassoon virtuoso/composer comparable to
Liszt, Paganini, or Bach, to name just a few who were known as much for
their performing ability as for their compositions.

Ob looping:  It occurs to me, though, that with a 'Plex or 'Rang and
maybe a Whammy Pedal at his/her disposal, a bassoonist could find the
playing field today a lot closer to level.
