Product Description

Review

This neat package from Newton combines three CDs,originally released in the 1980s,featuring that great oboist Heinz Holliger at the height of his powers.There is a meticulousness about everything he does.The tone is sinewy and lean,but exquisitely beautiful,the phrasing charged with the nervous intensity that is his hallmark.It's good now to be able to relish guitlessly the warm support of the lush string playing-devoid of anything we'd recognise as period style-of the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and of I Musici.This is a delightful recital. **** --The Sunday Times,12/09/10

Heinz Holliger is one of the best oboists ever. If you like oboe, then this is a great album to have in your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars delightful! 3 Aug 2011
By jsa - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This Newton Classics set includes disc for disc transfers of three of Heinz Holliger's recordings for Philips:

Bach: 3 Oboe Concertos

Telemann: Concerti for Oboe, Strings and Basso Continuo - in E minor, in D minor, in C minor, in F minor, in D Major - Heinz Holliger, Iona Brown

Concerti per Oboe.

The Bach and Telemann discs were made with Iona Brown directing the Academy of St Martins in the Fields in 1981 and 1982, whereas the assorted works making up the third disc were recorded in 1986 with I Musici.

Anyone who appreciates Baroque music played on modern instruments will love this reissue. The music is delightful, Holliger's playing is beautiful, he and the orchestras are completely on the same wavelength, and the recorded sound from Philips is rich and warm. Throw in the fact that the three cd's that make up this set are only available individually through archivmusic's on-demand service at $19.99 apiece makes this Newton Classics set irresistible.

Recommended without reservation.
