- "As an artistic practitioner, I get the chance to explore and use an incredibly beautiful instrument, the tone of the bassoon and the sound, is very close to the human voice and it is regarded as the most appealing and attractive instrument during the baroque period. The Bassoon has a great soul and it is said that the instrument's tone may come very close to the heart of the listener. "
