Rushes was composed by Michael Gordon for seven bassoons and conceived as a companion piece to his critically acclaimed Timber. This otherworldly recording brings out tonal and timbral aspects of the bassoon that you may have never heard, or knew existed, until now. It’s an ambient journey into quasi-meditative, at times ecstatic waves of melody and sound.
