Having a Saturday evening visit with my family, and once again I have crept upstairs to go through discs. 'Bad son part deux' should be the title of this post. Anyhow, here's a very nice disc of British Oboe Concertos; I am still trying to locate my favorite recordings of Vaughan William's gorgeous Oboe Concerto and while this version is very good, it's not in my top three or so...in fact I needed to hear it again after importing to refresh my memory! I am quite happy to have blown off the dust on
this cd, as it also contains great concertos by Gordon Jacob, Eugene Goosens, and the always delightful "A Fugal Concerto" by Holst. We also get a brief orchestration by Gordon Jacob of Elgar's "Soliloquy", originally from a Suite for oboe and piano.
That's all I have time for at the moment. Enjoy everyone!
