These transcriptions, done by oboist Ramon Ortega Quero himself, work very well. His subtle articulation, beautiful phrasing, and seamless, singing sound through the whole range of the instrument certainly add to this venture. He plays even the most technically difficult passages with charm and ease. He is joined in the G-major Trio Sonata by his wife, Tamar Inbar, also a fine oboist. Their sound quality and phrasing blend beautifully. One would almost guess that it was the same playeron both parts. Cellist Luise Buchberger and harpsichordist Peter Kofler put in fine performancesas well. Delightful playing.
