Notes & Reviews:

The romance is a typical Romantic genre that was cultivated by almost all 19th c. composers. It is characterized by lyricism and a musical simplicity that favors songful melody, does not demand great virtuosity and possesses definite form. Katsuya Watanabe (b. 1966, Japan) studied at the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music. At present he is solo oboist in the Luxembourg-based Solistes Européens and increasingly devotes himself to solo activities, giving frequent recitals and concert performances.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
This is the 4th release by Mr Watanabe and his colleague David Johnson on Profil. Mr Watanabe played for ten years at the German Opera in Berlin, and now plays with the European Soloists in Luxembourg. Mr Johnson has played with the German Opera since 1980. Beyond this, both are quite accomplished performers and recitalists. As for their collaboration on these four albums, they have found a common language in the wonderful oboe repertoire of the romantic period and later. Mr Watanabe makes the mild simplicity of the piece sparkle. Every oboist should find this album.
