History of the Bassoon

The Bassoon originated from an instrument in the 16th century known as the Dulcian.


Unlike today’s Bassoon, the Dulcian was one piece and always made of wood. In the music of the 1800’s, greater demands were made that the Dulcian could not meet, and so the modern Bassoon evolved.
