Need advice about the bassoon

You may or may not know this but I am arranging the Pathetique Sonata for a symphony orchestra. I have gotten to the second Grave section and the notes reach the very lowest register of the bassoon. Before I get too deep into it, I need some advice about the bassoon, preferably from someone who plays the bassoon.

Can the bassoon play pianissimo in its lowest register? Because the last note of the Grave section that I would put in the bassoon part is a B natural below the bass staff. I know the bassoon can be very mellow sounding but can B natural below the bass staff be played pianissimo? If not, then I will just have that note played by the double basses and notate it up an octave from where it is in the piano score to get the desired pitch.

I need music. Please. Thank you. :)

Okay, I'm gonna keep this short. I have a quintet comprised of 2 violins, viola (me), cello, bass. We are all in 8th grade, moving on to our Freshman year. If someone could please help me find some music to keep our quintet alive, please let me know. I would like "Wake Me Up" by Avicii, but anything that is upbeat and exciting would be nice. We are more dedicated than your typical middle-school players, however still require some simple music. Thank you!

Release 2.3.0

Trends in the modern world are moving towards simplification, acceleration and improvement. We add people as friends to Facebook, watch photos on Instagram, tweeting.

The community of MuseScore is very special. Here there are composers, and virtuosos, and beginners, who are just beginning to comprehend the world of sheet music. Our application lacked some part that could unite their interests.  

In our new release, we add functionality that will give you the opportunity to stay in trend, find like-minded people with a common musical taste, and be aware of what is happening in the world of MuseScore.  

The update consists of three parts.

The first is the Feed. This displays the most recently added scores of the composers you are following.

The second is the Notifications. We did not want to cause your frustration, so we placed them separately from the scores tab.

The third part is the Profiles. Now you can look at all the scores that this user added, and find like-minded people among those who subscribe to him.

Stay tuned.

Delete Conversation Feature

I realize that the messaging (PM) is simply a beta version right now, so now is a great time to suggest the enabling of each user to delete conversations with other users.  This would be especially useful when conversations become outdated, unwanted, or when the other person deletes their account.  When a conversation is over, one should have the ability to choose whether or not to keep it around as useless clutter, also making other conversations slightly harder to keep track of.  This would be the number one improvement for me right now as a regular user.
