Notes and Editorial Reviews

The four concerti featured on this disc have a unique similarity. Although the composers' heritage spans the globe (Germany, Greece, U.S.A., Puerto Rico), each of the works represent a compositional look back or reflection. Whether a reflection on an earlier compositional style in a neo-romantic or neo-renaissance manner, or a reflection on the folk dances and native rhythms of their homeland, each concerto is unique in perspective and creativity, often a blend of new tonalities with established formal and rhythmic structures of the past. These compositions each hold a valued place in the oboe's literature individually, and combine in this CD to represent a 'Global Reflection'. Oboist, Nancy Ambrose King joins forces with the Prague Chamber Read more Orchestra with conductor, Kypros Markou. Read less
