Notes and Editorial Reviews

A fascinating array of new works for oboe and electronics, performed by the world's No. 1 oboist in the New Music field. This music explores not only new techniques in electronics and sampling but also challenges the boundaries of the oboe and its sister instruments. The works by Roger Redgate and Michael Young contain a large proportion of improvisatory opportunities, so each performance is very different, and two versions of each are included here.
