Daniel Smith

With his many critically acclaimed award-winning recordings and live performances, Daniel Smith is the most recorded bassoon soloist in the world, with a repertoire spanning music from jazz to classical and crossover. As the only bassoonist performing and recording in both jazz and classical, his unique career has been profiled in numerous publications; described as the ‘Gerry Mulligan of the Bassoon’ in the world of jazz, and the ‘Rampal of the Bassoon’ in classical music.

Daniel Smith’s historic 5 CD box set of the complete 37 Vivaldi bassoon concertos, recorded with the English Chamber Orchestra and The Zagreb Soloists, was chosen as ‘Best Concerto Recording’ of the Year’ by the Music Industry Association. His pioneering crossover albums, ‘Bassoon Bon Bons’ and ‘Bravo Bassoon’, have demonstrated how versatile the bassoon can be in adapting music in other genres to the instrument.
