Centre Stage: Oboe Quartets
Put an oboe with three string players and something magical happens. Today, CBSO section leader oboe Rainer Gibbons is first amongst equals in Britten’s atmospheric youthful Phantasy, and the bright, bubbly Quartet that the 25-year old Mozart wrote for a friend who was a bad influence - but a wonderful player. Add a forgotten gem by “the English Bach” for a really refreshing lunchtime!
