Description
Evocation-of-Dreams-small

Oboist Victoria Brawn and Dolce Musica perform English music for oboe and string quartet.

A programme of music for oboe and string quartet to include Elizabeth Maconchy's quintet full of angst and supreme beauty and the pastoral dreamlike quality of the Finzi interlude.  Celebrating 100 years since the birth of Benjamin Britten, the Phantasy Quartet alludes to the continuing violence of the Spanish civil war and political unrest in Europe, capturing the dreamlike pastoralism of English composition of the time.

Arnold Bax was inspired by the lyrical style of the oboist Leon Goosens whose playing influenced a generation of oboists and composters alike.
