Notes & Reviews:

Nancy Ambrose King is the first prizewinner of the third New York International Competition for solo oboists. She has appeared as a soloist through the U.S. and abroad. A prolific recording artist, this is her ninth recording of the oboe's solo repertoire. She is a professor of oboe at the University of Michigan.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
Dusty corners of the literature require as much artistic commitment as a headline piece, and the performers here accept that challenge. King boasts a delightfully resonant sound that is intimate, yet easily heard over a lush orchestra. Her fingers and articulation are amazingly nimble, and her phrasing has natural grace and color. Like many oboists, though, she struggles a bit with clarity in the low register of the instrument; and while the chromatic passages in the Strauss are clean, the listener will appreciate the difficulty. Colon is a great partner on the Sierra, as she matches King perfectly in beauty of sound, technical skill, and musicianship. Not to be outdone, the Prague Chamber Orchestra plays with great drive, understanding, and professionalism.
