Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.

Yeon-Hee Kwak already has a catalogue rarity featuring concertos by Martinu and Dorati to her credit, and now this outstanding oboist and Munich resident pays tribute to three other twentieth-century composers. She performs with the Bavarian Radio Orchestra under Johannes Goritzki in a brand-new recording of the Strauss Oboe Concerto and the recording premiere of the orchestral version of the Concertino for Oboe and Orchestra by Nikos Skalkottas. The Inventions with a Postlude for Oboe and Cello by the Finnish composer Kalevi Aho form welcome encores.

Yeon-Hee Kwak has discovered a genuine gem in the Inventions of Kalevi Aho.
Read more With her cello partner David Ria she sets out on a journey through a mighty cosmos. Small in form but magnificent in expression: it is fascinating how the Finnish composer plays with the baroque idea and what colors the two musicians, individually and in dialogue, conjure out of the score.
