The first of three movements of David's Oboe Sonata. This was played live by John Anderson, a friend of a friend. I was delighted to have it played by such a renowned professional player. He was a member of
the Orchestre de la Swisse Romande at the the age of twenty. He is a main expositor of the Strauss Oboe concerto, has been principal oboist of the Royal Philharmonic and is principal oboist of the English Chamber Orchestra. He teaches at the Royal School of Music and is in great demand as a freelance performer. My great thanks go to him.
It is followed on this page by movements two and three.
