 soul fulfillling & elegant March 2, 2013 By Cecilia C. (San Jose, CA) See All My Reviews "Lovely album and performances. I heard a piece on KQED, a classical station in the Bay Area of CA, and purchased it. The pieces are magical. I liked oboe before, now I love it as an instrument. Usually, I'm more technical in my reviews, but this album just has become a favorite. The title piece is special." Report Abuse
