Music for Oboe, Horn and Piano
Here is a CD to explore the possibilities of this fascinating combination of composers. There is delightful interplay between oboe and horn throughout Mozart’s Trio, plus there are two other longer works - a major romantic trio from Herzogenberg, and an utterly beguiling one from Damase.
“Mozart's horn quintet arranged for horn, oboe and piano? Well, oddly enough it works; and makes a fascinating opening to this beautifully recorded recital.” Classical Music, 24th March 2012 ****
“Oboe, horn and piano is a rare but oddly beguiling blend of timbres, albeit a combination mostly avoided by composers...But it can be richly rewarding, as demonstrated here by Polmear, Stirling and Saxel...Most engaging of all is "Air Arabe" by H Molbe (pseudonym of a Bach presumably seeking his own identity), a slow, Romantic waltz of wistful tone and lightness of touch.” The Independent, 20th May 2011 ***
