Notes and Editorial Reviews

Thomas Oboe Lee’s Six Concertos gives us a spectrum of the composer’s wide-ranging musical influences over this double disc set. From the samba-infused Flauta Carioca to the flamenco-toned ... bisbigliando ...; the Greek myth- inspired Eurydice and Persephone to Mozartiana, written for Mozart scholar Robert Levin with “borrowed” themes abandoned by Wolfgang Amadeus himself; Lee’s works are a goldmine of allusions and unpredictability, all reined in by Lee's extensive experience as a jazz performer. Each concerto offers virtuosic solo performances under the direction of Gil Rose.
