Notes & Reviews:

It's fitting that we present a CD of American works for oboe and English horn in various chamber combinations. The song-like quality of these two instruments has made them ideal for expressing long, melancholy musical lines as well as more agitated, pithy statements. These chamber works express a great variety of moods and sounds and diverse, individual styles, all distinctly American.
