Among the favourites is the ever-fresh concerto on themes of Cimarosa, and the sinuous and deeplyfelt solo from the Sinfonia of Bach’s Easter Oratorio. There are several pieces in lighter vein, in which Goossens excelled. Lesser-known, but coming back to the attention of present-day oboists is the Concerto by Léon’s brother Eugene, with its exotic orchestration and virtuoso solo part. The album is completed by Léon Goossens’ 1947 interpretation of the Richard Strauss concerto, written just over a year earlier. Accompanying the CD is a16-

page booklet that has an extended interview with Nicholas Daniel. In it he speaks of the Goossens legacy, connections between Goossens' career as a soloist and his own, and on the individual performances on the album. Specifically he considers this first recording of Strauss' Oboe Concerto with his own interpretation, being prepared at the time of the interview for a new recording.
