Ruth Bolister English Oboe Concertos - Ruth Bolister with the ECO

Accomplished playing, and fine English music from the 1920s-40s. Ruth's playing is filled with character, showing off the full range of timbres and tones her Howarth oboe can produce. From intelligent nuances of lyricism to wholesome, bold statements, Ruth's playing is excellent throughout. She shines as a soloist against the playing of the English Chamber Orchestra, whose lustrous strings really embody the nostalgic feel of British music from this period. This CD also features the world premiere recording of Jacob's Concerto for Oboe and Strings- a very deserving addition to recorded works of the oboe.

This CD contains:

Gordon Jacob - COncerto no. 1 for Oboe and Strings (1934)
Sir Edward Elgar - Soliloquy (1930)
Gustav Holst - A Fugal Concerto (1923) - with Kate Hill, flute
Sir Eugene Goossens - Concerto en un mouvement (1927)
Ralph Vaughan Williams - Oboe Concerto in A Minor (1944)
