About

These highly acclaimed recordings of the complete solo oboe concertos of Albinoni originally appeared on the Unicorn [1988] and Regis labels and are widely regarded as the best performances of the composerís Opp. 7 & 9 to be performed on modern instruments. An illuminating essay is included in the CD booklet by 18th century expert Michael Talbot.

Sarah Francis is one of Britainís foremost oboists, enjoying an international career as a concert performer, broadcast artist, recording artist, chamber musician and teacher. She has recorded for Decca, Hyperion, Chandos and Naxos and her recordings are frequently played on BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM. Concert appearances have taken her all over the world, including appearances at the BBC Proms, and Gordon Crosse, William Matthias and Anthony Payne have all written concertos for her.

"Rhythmically secure and with a pleasing awareness of dance measures, this playing gave me uninterrupted pleasure from start to finish." - Gramophone

"Sarah Francis is an immensely stylish and gifted soloist. She is accompanied with warmth and grace, and the recording is first class, transparent yet full and naturally balanced." - Penguin Guide to Compact Discs 4* Key Recording
