Jean-Daniel Braun – liner notes update

I sent out a public plea for help in finding information about Jean-Daniel Braun… I want to release this recording of his 24 Solos (1740) on Halloween, but have not been able to find any substantial information.  I decided to also ask for help in writing the liner notes… I figured that the same person with the skills to discover information probably would have the skill to string the words together quicker than I would!

My undignified FaceBook bleat brought helpful bassoonists out of the woodwork and I offered the task to Dave Wells of Sacramento State University… he possesses a handy combination of degrees (musicology and bassoon performance) and an intrepid spirit.  He reports that information is thin on the ground but he has a few leads and has ordered some facsimiles… with any luck, a story will emerge!
