My rating (1-10): 10+

Delightful in every way! Beautiful oboe performance! The audio is excellent- you can hear every nuance of the oboe including the click of the keys! Very beautiful tones come out of that oboe! This modern small chamber orchestra is one of the very best I've ever heard. This is a recording I can listen to over and over. In fact, I do. Don't miss this one, it's great.
