Notes and Editorial Reviews

This third album in the Toccata Classics survey of the chamber music of London-born Stephen Dodgson (1924–2013) focuses on his works for oboe. It shows a master-craftsman at work: Dodgson fuses a Baroque sense of clarity, a modern English elegance that has echoes of Britten and Tippett and a hint of eastern European mystery. His writing for oboe has a strong sense of narrative, touching a range of moods, from deep emotion to tongue-in-cheek fun.James Turnbull is the featured oboist on this recording.
