Produktbeschreibung

It was an oboist friend of the young Benjamin Britten who inspired the composer to write a number of works for the instrument, the most well-known being the Fantasy Quartet op. 2 and the Metamorphoses op.49 “Insect-Pieces” and “Temporal Variations”, both for oboe and piano, were the first discovered after the composer’s death. These four constitute Britten’s complete oeuvre for oboe and they are combined on this CD with two other very personal works, his “Gemini Variations” and his Suite for harp.
