The three movements of the Concerto for Bassoon and Strings focus on three distinct sets of characteristics often associated with the Bassoon: bouncy & light; lyrical & expressive; rhythmic & assertive.

The first movement, "A Light Touch," is marked "with a joyous lilt." The bassoon enters, bouncing down the scale, and then jumping back up the octave. This diatonic theme is contrasted with sections that carry the tonal center far from the original D Minor, into the A Flat regions. The contrasting sections bring some dissonance and syncopation against the theme. But, all resolves quickly at the end. This movement is a rondo in form.
