Notes and Editorial Reviews

Is it possible to represent faithfully the rich world of the oboe and oboe playing? This double CD has a really good try, with 33 tracks of music from composers such as Mozart, Ravel, Tchaikovsky and Britten. Twenty oboists are featured, including Elaine Douvas and Nicholas Daniel. The first CD is designed to be enjoyed as either foreground or background music, with instantly recognisable tunes, or music with a persuasive atmosphere, or both. The second covers an enormous range, from Beethoven's Fidelio to Berio's The CD booklet is extensive and in colour throughout, with a description of each track and articles on the nature of the oboe, how a reed is made, and what happens in an oboe factory. The music tracks are taken from the Oboe Read more Classics catalogue and also from other CDs. Most of these tracks already exist on download sites; there will be no uploading of this CD as such Read less
