About this Recording


This recording offers a fascinating survey of Russian oboe music spanning over 150 years. Though now widely neglected, Johann-Heinrich Luft held an important position as an oboist in 19th century Russia and was the acknowledged founder of the Russian school of oboe-playing. From music by Rimsky-Korsakov, including a dazzling transcription of Flight of the Bumble-Bee, to the more nearly contemporary, all these compositions bring to the fore the lyrical qualities of the instrument and the virtuosity of the performer.
