  1. Dr. Pierce,

    I recall finding an article you had written a few years back about the relative difficulty of the Vivaldi bassoon concerti, along with some other information about them. I was looking for that information today, but just cannot find it! Any chance you had a copy of it you could forward?

    Thank you,
