"Daniel Smith is a horrible bassoonist!! The professional and bassoon world agrees that his tone is horrible, and that he's an excellent example of how a bassoon should NOT sound. Many major classical music radio stations, after requests from professional bassonists, have pulled his recordings from their play lists. He is recorded only because he rents an orchestra to play with. Please, for your own sake, do not buy any of his recordings.If you'd like to hear a good bassoonist, try recordings by Milan Turkovich (my personal favorite), Dag Jensen, John Miller, Klaus Thunemann, or just about anyone else...except Daniel Smith."
Great record

"This record is simply beautiful. I love the way Daniel Smith plays this very difficult instrument with any kind of music. Bravo D. Smith"

"Having heard Mr Smith in Classical Concerts as well as playing superb jazz I cannot recommend highly enough any of his recordings. His Vivaldi concerto recordings have received awards both here in the UK and in the US. This apart from a full page in the Penguin Review of CDs, reviews in Classic CD and Fanfare as well as articles on his life and work, and his great passion for his instrument and his wish to make it better known throughout the world both as a classical instrument and also for jazz. The disc in question is not only enjoyable music to hear but contains great playing. I have had many hours of very happy listening to Bravo Bassoon and the Vivaldi Concerto recordings. I urge you to listen to these discs and to include them in your record library."
