There is an article in the International Double Reed Society Journal
(Fall 1990 Volume 13, Number 2 pgs. 58-60) entitled, "Willson
Osborne's Rhapsody for Bassoon" by Terry B. Ewell. The author also
laments the lack of biographical information on Osborne. However, the
article provides a "brief analysis of the construction of the
Rhapsody...and lastly documents the compositional output of Willson
Osborne." At least it is something...
