Heckel Bassoon 6881

History Found after the end of World War II in a pawnbroker's shop in Bordeaux. It is probable that a returning GI en route for the States from Germany had the bassoon with him and just could not be bothered to take it on board ship. High D and E keys added. Used in the London Symphony and in 1964 used to record Bolero with Pierre Monteux.
