Fabulous

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Lucarelli is by far my favorite oboist. He has the most beautiful tone and sense of expression. I highly recommend this CD, even if you aren't an oboe afficianado. He's fabulous."
Some good playing BADLY let down

"All you really need to do is listen to the first 29 seconds of the last movement of the Vaughan Williams with the score, and that should be enough to persuade you not to buy this recording.

Mr Lucarelli is a fine and beautiful player, but lack of attention to detail of the Lehigh Valley Chamber Orchestra, and more importantly the engineers/producers is execrable.

The orchestra is frequently out of tune, in completely in the wrong place, or just generally come unstuck with the soloist completely. The real crime is that the producers allowed it to happen, and allowed it to be released!

If this had been a live recording, some of this may have been acceptable; it wasn't, so it isn't.

An amateurish attempt, marring some excellent playing from the soloist (this fine playing being the only reason I rated it with 'two' stars rather than a pitiful 'one'). Don't waste your money."

"Thanks again Mr. Lucarelli, for your refreshing interpretations and comforting sound. Looking forward to the Bach CD"
