"The Art of Wind Playing" is written by one of the great bassoonists and masters of wind playing, Arthur Weisberg. Mr. Weisberg presents the physical principles of sound production on wind instruments and then shows how these principles can be utilized to produced more artistic performances. Though Mr. Weisberg is known as a bassoonist, his examples transfer easily to all wind instruments. The book presents technical concepts in a manner that is approachable to most readers. Highly recommended to any performer or teacher who wants to improve his/her wind playing skills and musical artistry.

Arthur Weisberg was my teacher's teacher. I found his book to be extremely helpful to me , although I play saxophone, not bassoon. Specifically it helped me develop my vibrato, as well as generally helping develop much better breath control, which seems to be THE essential skill in improving every aspect of woodwind playing. I recommend this book to all wind players regardless of level, and especially woodwind players, but I can see it would be helpful to brass players as well.

Mr. Weissberg was one of the most influential teachers of mine at Yale School of Music. His musical insights and knowledge of winds is amazing and has strongly impacted on my college teaching for the last 35 years. His book is essential for all woodwind players!

Glad to see this book being reprinted!, it's a CLASSIC for wind players (especially bassoonists!). This is a 'must-have' IMHO.
