The fall semester has begun, so it’s time for my students to buy their required recordings for the semester. This semester I wanted to address a few glaring gaps in the library my students have built so far:
- The oboists don’t have anything Baroque yet.
- The clarinetists don’t have anything by Weber yet.
- The bassoonists don’t have the Mozart concerto yet.
- The saxophonists don’t have the Glazunov concerto yet.
I think I found some great recordings to fill those voids. As a diversity bonus, three of the four are talented women, and one of those is a native Israeli.
Here are the selections:
Ray Still: A Chicago Legend: Baroque Oboe Sonatas
Repertoire: Bach Sonata in G minor, Handel Sonatas nos. 1 and 2, Telemann Partitas 2, 5, and 6, Vivaldi Sonata no. 6
