Mozart may have written the best-known Oboe Quartet but it has many equally entertaining companions, as this CD shows. The delightful and inventive classical Quartets by Johann Wanhal and Franz Krommer featured here are by Bohemian composers well-known to oboists, if not to the wider world, who may well wonder why not. Of the more contemporary Quartets featured here, Malcolm Arnold continues with the playfulness that Mozart started, while Spanish composer Ferrer Ferran’s Horus is a gripping and intense work, written especially for this Quartet. The Spanish theme continues with two well-known folk and dance-influenced pieces by Isaac Albéniz.
