Christin Schillinger

Oxford, OH      

Bassoonist Christin Schillinger is an internationally acclaimed performer, researcher, and pedagogue. She specializes in the accessibility of the avant-garde, aiming to broaden the audience for both new music and bassoon. Critics describe her performances as “vibrant and expressive,” “full of live and inspiration.” Her tone is “pure and beautiful.”

Schillinger works closely with living composers. Her two solo albums, Bassoon Transcended (2013) and Bassoon Surrounded (2009), produced for MSR Classics by Swineshead Productions, feature world-premiere recordings of new works for bassoon. Collaborative composers remark upon her “natural interpretation” and “perfect musical choices.”

To facilitate the demands of 21st-century compositions, Schillinger researches, lectures, and publishes on reed-making consistency. Her book, Bassoon Reed Making (Indiana University Press c2015), details current and historic trends in this field. Schillinger’s groundbreaking reserach extends to guest lectures and residencies throughout the United States and Europe.
