Choose to hear the soloist with orchestra or piano, or hear the accompaniment alone and you become the soloist!
Elaine Douvas of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra continues the Oboe Classics series with these wonderful advanced-level solos on oboe.
These cover the range from Baroque (Handel) to Twentieth Century Modernism (Hindemith), and includes two virtually unknown Romantic Era ‘Solos de Concert’ by Stanislas Verroust. A magnificent collection and a tremendous opportunity to advance to the highest levels of achievement. As a special bonus, this album includes a separate book containing the rare piano accompaniments to the Verroust ‘Solos de Concert.’
Includes a complete solo part printed on high-quality ivory paper, annotated with performance suggestions and a compact disc with complete versions (with soloist) followed by piano accompaniments to each piece, minus the soloist. Also includes a bonus book of piano accompaniments to the Verroust Solos de Concert.
