The IDRS and its publications are the primary scholarly resource for all double reed performers. Authors that contribute to these journals typically consist of professional orchestral performers and university professors. Articles published in the periodical address most aspects of double reed performance, reed making, music literature, and pedagogy. This treatise focuses on those articles published in the IDRS periodicals specifically addressing topics related to the bassoon. The purpose of this treatise is to provide an annotated guide to the many articles available and an easily accessible reference for research. As there is currently no catalog of bassoon articles for the IDRS, this reference guide seeks to fill the void and create an effective and efficient reference tool. Literature included in this catalog comes from The Double Reed (the quarterly publication by the IDRS), The Journal of the IDRS, and the newsletter To The World's Bassoonists. The organization of articles into categories appears in chronological order. Each article is listed in bibliographic citation format, which includes the author's name, title of the article, and date of publication. Annotations follow with the description of contents. Additional categories of articles without annotations are included in the appendix. This treatise provides annotations for 175 articles, with an additional 500 articles not annotated categorized in the appendix. Parameters for selecting articles used in this treatise includes instrument development, references for students and teachers, music analysis, pedagogy, and methodologies. This treatise does not include music reviews, recording reviews, letters to the editor, anecdotal articles, current events, or musicians in the news, even if listed in the "article" section of the periodical. With the abundance of articles presented in this treatise, not all entries will contain annotations; a list of categorized titles appears in the appendix.
