Stephan Schilli became solo oboist with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra at the age of only 20. Here he presents three masterpieces of the oboe repertoire. All three composers wrote their concertos within 10 years (1945-1955) but all are examples of very different traditions and styles.
Bohuslav Martinu: Oboe Concerto, H. 353
II. Poco andante
III. Poco allegro
Bernd Alois Zimmermann: Oboe Concerto
I. Homage to Stravinsky
Richard Strauss: Oboe Concerto in D major
I. Allegro moderato
“All three works are superbly played here by the brilliantly nimble Stefan Schilli, and Mariss Jansons and the Bavarian orchestra give him vivid support. I cannot think of a more enticing triptych of modern oboe concertos from any other source.”
