Homework
..., in which there’s a very important bassoon obligato, a solo for the bassoon in xx the movements. It was a banana skin.

The bassoon part starts innocuously enough, honking away at a steady xx. But then comes a bassoonist’s worst nightmare.

In the space of about two and a half bars, he sends the bassoon through a whole list of different keys involving very very very complicated xx.

Deliberately or not, Bach has set a trap for his xx bassoonist.

He was writing for a fellow called “G Bach”, who in rehearsal made a complete hash of it. And Bach was exasperated to the point when he called him “a super faggotist” which can be translated variously as a nanny-goat bassoon or a green-horn bassoon. But in reality, Bach was calling him a “prick”.

Yet another translation is bassoonist breaking wind after eating a green onion. However G Bach understood the term, he didn’t like what he was hearing.
