Audio Sample

Available From: 01 June 2008
In 2008, the competition year, Karen gives a concert at Fulham Palace on 10 June, and will be appear as a soloist with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra on 22 June. She will spend the summer months touring as a soloist with the Edinburgh Youth Orchestra, conducted by Gary Walker. Amidst all this performing activity she will also be recording her second disc for Chandos.

She produces a beautiful, singing tone, sails through the fastest passages and even despatches a top E-flat with aplomb.
Classic FM Magazine

This is a marvellous start with which to launch one’s career. Karen should be congratulated on her achievement. I can truly say that I look forward to following her progression as she develops as a soloist and matures her style.
Double Reed Society

This is an enjoyable disc, helped by a recording that is up to Chandos’ usual high standards
International Record Review

Name five internationally famous bassoon soloists. Archie Camden, Gwydion Brooke and,er, that’s it. Except I think we shall soon be adding the name of Karen Geoghegan to the roll call…. Chandos have a real find on their hands with Karen Geoghegan.

She plays Hummel’s Grand Concerto with pumping authority. Her proud, centre-stage arrival after Hummel’s customary long, tantalising intro is no disappointment – her slow movement sings with high sax-like tone and the swinging finale expresses rustic joy.
The Times

But Geoghegan has real expressive maturity too. Elgar’s Romance is heavenly and, as an encore, Gershwin’s ‘Summertime’ deliciously dreamy, showing off a glorious tone, coloured with gentle restrained vibrato.,, Buy it and share in thefun.
