My first album has been released!
What a joy, it is the achievement of many hours of work, recording, listening…!
You can find in this album my favorite romantic pieces for oboe and piano. The title is directly borrowed from the Romances by Clara and Robert Schumann, essentials in the oboe repertoire (even if the Romances de Clara were written for the violin). You will also hear Three pieces in the romantic style by Léopold Wallner. I think this is the first recording of these pieces, which deserve to be better known and more played! (I strongly recommend that you listen to the third one: Reverie). We added the Poem by Marina Dranishnikova, an incredible work, full of twists (and flats).
And finally, the Salut d’Amour by Edward Elgar, so that the melody stays stuck in your head endlessly!
Very good listening!
