Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Though Francois Devienne is not seen as a major composer, he was of major importance for the development of woodwind instruments, and the writing for these. Devienne's pieces reveal vivacity and virtuosic exploration. This CD contains a selection of his Oboe Sonatas, for oboe, harpsichord, and cello, played by leading early music specialists.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
All the sonatas are in three movements and consist of a melodic line plus an accompaniment. They are written quite well and make pleasant listening. Sometimes the writing is virtuosic. All the repeats are taken, and Devienne's writing is occasionally enlivened with flourishes from Glaetzner. The tempos of fast movements tend to be moderate. These are accomplished German players and they play very well. The sound gives the oboist a lot of presence and is quite resonant. Christine Schornsheim plays a piano modeled after one by Louis Dulcken, c. 1815.
