Notes & Reviews:

Oboist Céline Moinet begins her collaboration with harmonia mundi with a veritable tour de force, combining, in a single collection, two repertories separated by more than two centuries. On it, 18th century works by Johann Sebastian and Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach are paired with the 20th century of Benjamin Britten, Luciano Berio and Elliott Carter in a project that combines exceptional musical coherence with a decidedly gentle sonority, reminding us of the 'tenderness' with which Berlioz identified the oboe.

The Guardian
[the Bachs' works] were composed for the flute, and though the works transfer easily enough, there is something slightly laboured in the results... In the modern works, which also include Elliott Carter's 1992 Inner Song, she's more convincing, fluent in the Metamorphoses, with their elegantly chiselled melodic lines, suitably capricious in the Sequenza

BBC Music Magazine
[Moinet] meets Berio's hair-raising demands and is positively swept along by the sheer gutsiness of Sequenza VII's trajectory. It's an exhilarating performance - edgy, audacious, fired up with virtuosic bravado - and the multiphonics are breathtaking.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
For a program without accompaniment, Ms Moinet's performance is quite outstanding. Intonation, articulation, tone, dynamics, and phrasing are all fully exposed so that even the slightest imperfection would tarnish an otherwise perfect performance.
