Fibonacci Sequence: Oboe
The fourth volume in The Fibonacci Sequence’s acclaimed series of CD’s focussing on a solo instrument. In this case it’s the turn of the oboe, featuring Christopher O’Neal.
The Fibonacci Sequence is now well established as one of the finest chamber ensembles in Britain.
This witty collection of music for oboe and chamber ensemble, highlights, as oboist Christopher O’Neal describes “the humour of Françaix, the irony of Poulenc, the brilliance of Crusell and the easy charm of Alwyn.” But, he adds, “the two Mozart pieces have it all, and in spades!”
“Christopher O'Neal's playing of both oboe and cor anglais is bright, incisive and elegantly turned… His colleagues match his artistry and expertise, not least with unusually well characterised string playing in the Mozart Quartet.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2009 ****
“…Christopher O'Neal's… playing on this most diverting anthology offers unbridled pleasure in its impeccable expertise, agile grace, tasteful expression and appealing variety of colour and tone. Boasting realistic sound and balance, this disc makes for delightful late-evening listening and earns an easy recommendation.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2009
“There's the courtly charm of Mozart's Oboe Quartet in F Major, K 370; Crusell's more flamboyant Divertimento; Poulenc's Trio, with lively passages sandwiching a sweetly poignant central section; a couple of genteel duets with harp, by Alwyn and Elgar; and the stand-out piece, Francaix's Quator à vents, a woodwind quartet of sharply contrasting moods culminating in a wonderful pastoral Allegro vivo.” The Independent, 10th April 2009
