Recorded on Gernot Wolfgang - Short Stories (Albany Records TROY 1248)

(...) Danach wird es entspannter mit Gernot Wolfgangs 'Low Agenda', meinem Lieblingsstuck der CD, einem fast nostalgisch swingenden Blues im Duett des Fagotts mit einem Kontrabass, der seine Zupforgien ja schon immer im jazzigen Swing feierte, hier aber - ohne den mystischen Fluss zu verlassen - auch gestrichene Tone produzieren darf. (Rohrblatt Nr. 26, 2011 - Heft 4) // The disc opens on an overtly jazzy note with Low Agenda for bassoon and contrabass - the work lasts less than four minutes and has several attractive passages for both instrumentalists. (musicweb-international, May 2011) // This piece has a jazzy feel, and my favorite moment is when the two instruments reach a raucous groove with the bassoon growling out one of its notes. Much of the lines sound like written improvisations, and this gives a certain energy and spontaneity to the piece. (David Pearson, Icareifyoulisten) // The chamber works on this disc reveal his affection for thematic accessibility, harmonic diversity and unconventional instrumental combinations and effects. The repertoire embraces everything from puckish humour and jubilance to haunting modernism and lyrical radiance. Wolfgang is especially inventive in frisky and poetic material for such pairings as bassoon and double bass, as in 'Low Agenda' (GRAMOPHONE, August 2011) // Groovy could almost describe the first track, Low Agenda with the contrabass' s jazzy pizzicato beat, complementing the smoky, saxophone-style writing for the bassoon. It is a fitting tribute to saxophonist Michael Brecker, and acts as an instrumental showpiece. (Barnaby Rayfield, FANFARE Magazine Jul/Aug. 11).
