A classic recital of these relatively unknown concerti
(5 out of 5 stars)
"To anyone acquainted with the works of Louis Auguste Lebrun,this is a truly classic recital of the first full opus of his oboe concerti. In his true style, Holliger has managed to capture the necessary ambience required for these concerti.
The 2 CD's are re-issues of the original DIGITAL vinyls,issued on the Archiv Label.To those unfamiliar with the works of Lebrun, who wish to experiment with new composers and new gendre in general, this re-release comes with my full recommendations.
You will not be sorry with the purchase.P.S Have a look at the Channel Classics CD cs16198
Bart Schneemann's playing is outstanding, but the opus is not complete. Only 3 concerti were recorded.Indications are that Channel Classic is planning to complete the opus during the 2003-2004 season, plus issue the remaining 8 of 14 concerti(as per my communication with Channel Classics)."
