Product description

Product Description

Two major British oboe concertos featuring soloist Nicholas Daniel with the Britten Sinfonia. Composer James MacMillan conducts the world premiere recording of his own Concerto (dedicated to Nicholas Daniel), as well as his 2012 composition 'One' and the Britten 'Suite on English Folk Tunes: A Time There Was'. The oboist himself directs the Ralph Vaughan Williams concerto, the work with which he won the BBC Young Musician of the Year Competition at the age of 18.


***** 'If the musical public revered oboists as they do pianists and tenors, Nicholas Daniel would be as widely esteemed as Lang Lang or Jonas Kaufmann. He is arguably Britain s most virtuosic and adventurous instrumentalist and as mesmerising a talent now, at 53, as he was when he won the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition 35 years ago ... The oboe writing is insanely demanding throughout; Daniel is stunning.' --Richard Morrison - The Times, 10th April 2015

'absolutely outstanding, the playing is beautiful, the balance is perfect and it s a great work [Chris O Reilly] ... it absolutely knocked my socks off [Richard Morrison]' Chris O Reilly & Richard Morrison BBC Radio 3 CD Review, 19th April 2015 -------'On this disc of delightfully summery music, the emphasis is initially on the pastoral: the airborne lyricism of Vaughan Williams Oboe Concerto, its liquid lyricism shaped with velvet perfection by soloist Nicholas Daniel and the Britten Sinfonia ... MacMillan s own Oboe Concerto introduces a feistier mood, its nimble virtuosity playfully executed by the same soloist.' --Ken Walton The Scotsman, 2nd May 2015

GRAMOPHONE EDITOR'S CHOICE 'Not only so his [Nick Daniels'] flawless discipline, liquid tone, exquisite chiaroscuro and seemingly superhuman breath control crush the ear, but he also encourages his colleagues to give their polished and raptly committed best ... Excellent sound and truthful balance throughout: this anthology merits a strong recommendation.' Andrew Achenbach - Gramophone, May 2015 ------- 'A fine showcase for Daniel s mellifluous playing ... His searching Oboe Concerto, premiered by these performers in 2010, is a bracing contrast with Vaughan Williams s Concerto for Oboe and Strings, that small miracle of barely interrupted broken lyrical flow, never more persuasive than in Daniel s interpretation.' --Paul Driver The Sunday Times, 26th April 2015
