Nicola Hands and her pianist Jonathan Pease have produced a stimulating mixture of well-loved oboe repertoire with pieces that deserve to be - all recorded in a warm studio acoustic.

Among the better-known pieces there is some characterful Grovlez and Bozza, serious Schumann, Rubbra's intense Duo and some effervescent Saint-SaŽns. Among the lesser-known pieces, there is a folk-like Watersmeet from Lamont Kennaway and a CharakterstŁcke by Karl Goepfart.

Most extensive is the Poem by Marina Dranishnikova. She studied piano and composition at the Leningrad Conservatoire and wrote this piece in 1953. It is said to have been prompted by an unhappy love for an oboist. Whatever the origin, it is intense, beautiful, and unsettling music.
