5.0 out of 5 stars Oboe: The Seductress of the Orchestra 20 Jan 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
If there is a more sensual, emotional instrument, I have never heard it. These pieces bring to life the wonderful tone and complexion of the oboe, and show off the amazing talent of the musician. I especially enjoy Vivaldi's third movement, Haydn's first movement, and Mozart's third movement. The uptempo pieces move delightfully up and down the scale with effortless precision, while the slower movements bring the somber mood to life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Background into Oboe Usage in 18th Century 24 May 2001
By rodboomboom - Published on Amazon.com

Line notes are very informative. Didn't know that oboe didn't come into formal usage as we know of it until mid-17th Century in France. No wonder that country still produces best of this instrument.
Thus, here we have four concertos for oboe and orchestra from 17th C, two from beginning and two towards the end.
Learned that Vivaldi wrote 11 concertos for oboe plus two more for oboe and orchestra. The one on this recording is from 1716 and features in the third movement ample rythm for the wonderful solo work which are framed by the tuttis.
Although introduced to Marcello here and fascinated to learn that Bach transcripted much of his harpsichord pieces for Duke Ernst at Weimar. Intense oboe piece of melancholy and stillness.
Haydn's Concerto in C is under dispute it seems for his composition, but as notes state: "would by no means be displeased with its subsequent attribution to him." Ending Rondo is excellent.
Interesting that Mozart's Oboe Concerto in C was not discovered until 1949, since for years it was under the form of his Concerto in D major for flute, which he had transposed it. Originally written for Fereiendi, principal oboeist at Salzburg Orchestra, it is light and charming, with very bright finale.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great oboe concerto disc 28 Nov 2012
By Oboist 2 - Published on Amazon.com

These pieces are all standard repertoire for the oboe and are all charmingly played. Derek Wickens plays the Vivaldi, Marcello and Haydn and Douglas Boyd plays the Mozart. Derek Wickens is elegant in his playing with a finely focused sweet sound, while Douglas Boyd is perhaps a tad more robust. Their playing is typical of the generation of English players who hit their stride in the 80s and 90s - the sound being a little less "English" than their predecessors. A nice disc to own. You will not be disappointed.
