English Oboe Concertos: Gordon Jacob, Concerto No.1 for Oboe & Strings - Gustav Holst, A Fugal Concerto - Eugene Goossens, Concerto En Un Mouvement - Vaughan Williams, Oboe Concerto - Ruth Bolister, Oboe - Elgar Chamber Orchestra, Stephen Bell - ASV 2003

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 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!

Jacob's oboe concerto is a nice addition to the works of his I have access to - put the trombone concerto on while downloading & writing. Goossens is new to me too.Thanks as always, Mr. T..

Cjv I must say it's a relief (yes, you're stressing me out old-timer..hehe) to post something that you don't already have; based on what I know from many of your/our comments you're collection is rather extensive too :)

El doctor T son siempre muy bienvenidos a mi hermano. Estoy feliz Jacob Concierto era nuevo para usted! En realidad no puedo recordar si tengo los discos Lyrita que hablas; Yo podría tenerlos, pero es sólo una colección colosal de desorganización .......;-) Hace años me mantuve todo organizado alfabéticamente por el compositor, y luego por el tipo de trabajo (a partir w canciones del compositor, a continuación, las obras en solitario instrumentales , entonces la cámara music..and etc.), pero se me acabaron las estanterías y estanterías con rapidez por lo que entonces era más lo que el gran Hovhaness diría ... "caos controlado"!
