 Timbre Trills on the Bassoon
Author: eterten

Hello Everyone!

My name is Emil and I am currently studying classical composition.
I'm currently working on a wind quintet piece, and if it is possible, I would like to ask a question about the instrument.

I am interested in the "timbre trills". I am watching the educational videos of the Royal Philharmonia orchestra, and the bassoon player Meyrick Alexander is talking about the timbre trill in this video:


He says it is done by open/closing a tone hole which is not used for the played pitch. In the video, he is playing a C. I want to use the D a seventh below that C (under the first ledger line of the bass clef).

Is this possible? Is there an available tone hole for that pitch? If not, can you please tell me which pitches in that register are available for the effect?

Thank you very much, for making music, and also for your replies (in advance)
