Product description

Product Description

Period-instrument oboist extraordinaire Gonzalo X. Ruiz performs reconstructed keyboard concertos by J. S. Bach, with Monica Huggett leading the Portland Baroque Orchestra.

In 2009, Gonzalo X. Ruiz joined Monica Huggett and her Ensemble Sonnerie in a recording of Bach's Orchestral Suites which included a reconstruction of the Second Suite replacing the familiar flute solo with oboe, a premise soundly supported by the musicians' research. The album went on to top the Billboard Classical Chart and was nominated for a Grammy Award. Gonzalo returns with an equally convincing recording of concertos commonly heard on keyboard, performing his own adaptations for oboe and oboe d'amore. He joins forces once again with Monica, this time with her Portland Baroque Orchestra. Upon hearing the beauty and virtuosity of Gonzalo's playing it becomes easy to believe that Bach had the sound of the oboe in mind when composing these popular works.

Personnel: Gonzalo X. Ruiz (oboes), Portland Baroque Orchestra, Monica Huggett (violin, director)

Critical acclaim:

"Ruiz brought his characteristic firm, yet sweet, singing tone to the music...His pinpoint oboe lines darted through the full-tilt solos...[he] was rewarded with a raucous standing ovation complete with whoops, shouts and whistles." - Wall Street Journal

"Wonderful buoyancy, lift and insights of Monica Huggett." - BBC Music Magazine (on Bach Orchestral Suites for a Young Prince)

"Bach with an energy and irrepressible momentum...The virtuosity displayed by all performers is truly impressive." - Early Music America (on Portland Baroque Orchestra's St John Passion)
