Etienne Ozi (1754–1813) played a decisive role in expanding the tonal, technical, and expressive range of the bassoon in the late eighteenth century. His duos and Méthodes remain the most comprehensive surviving source on the performance and pedagogical practices of the late eighteenth-century bassoonist. Ozi's influence as a teacher of the bassoon and as a composer for the instrument was international in scope. This edition of Ozi's duos follows suggested performance practices of articulation and embellishment as found in his Méthodes of 1787 and 1803.  In addition to providing today's bassoonist with some attractive performance materials, this edition also serves as an introduction to the bassoon performance practices and compositional traditions as established by Ozi at the Paris Conservatory during and after the French Revolution. Ozi's music and instruction became significant in shaping a national school of bassoon artistry that remains to this day unique and highly influential.
