Bassoonist Heard
'Round the World!

WASHINGTON, DC -- Internationally acclaimed virtuoso Lynn Gaubatz will be the first bassoonist ever featured in concert on the Voice of America's "Concert Hall" on June 19, 1988.

During the intermission of her recital, Miss Gaubatz and host Richard Kleinfeldt will discuss her career and performance, which was taped April 18 at the Lyceum in Alexandria, Virginia.

"Concert Hall" is a weekly classical music program on the Voice of America which features prominent American performers, composers, conductors, and ensembles. The forty-five minute broadcast is heard by millions in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.

Named "One of America's Ten Most Outstanding Young Working Women" by Glamour, Miss Gaubatz has been hailed by American and European critics as "brilliant", "charming", and "delightful". By age 26 she had performed as soloist on four continents - Europe, North and South America, and Africa - and was the Bassoon Professor at the prestigious Mozarteum Conservatory in Salzburg, Austria from 1982 to 1984.

Miss Gaubatz has played as principal bassoonist under conductors Leonard Bernstein, Sir Georg Solti, and Seiji Ozawa, among others, in Austria, Germany, Spain, Venezuela, and the U.S. During her tours of Spain and Africa as soloist, she was featured on Radio Nacional de Espaņa, and her critically-acclaimed performances of Mozart's Bassoon Concerto have been broadcast on three continents by PBS, Radio Nacional de Espaņa, and Radio Nacional de Venezuela. In addition to her solo and chamber music performances, she is an active teacher and was recently named to the faculty of the Washington Conservatory of Music.
