Instrumental Music
Introduction

There is a wide variety of chamber music that will be posted for a time and then replaced. Some is for string quartet, some for piano and a range of traditonal instruments.

The piece that I am proudest of is an oboe sonata which takes about 15 minutes to perform. It was recorded - in my garden shed where all my equipment is housed - by John Anderson, Principal Oboe of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the English Chamber Orchestra. Most things I do are done electronically, using Garriton Personal Orchestra. To have a first rate professional play, albeit it with an electronic accompaniment, is, for me as an amateur, an experience of a totally different kind.

Oboe Sonata

Oboe, Instrumental

The first of three movements of an Oboe Sonata 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.
