4 opmerkingen:

  1. According to Wikipedia, the Haydn concerto is spurious. It's quite pleasant though. Someone seems to think it might be Beethoven! Thanks!

    1. Thanks for your reaction and for the link! Very interesting discussion.

  2. This is especially interesting for me, as I knew the conductor Janos Sandor well during the last few years of his life (he died in May 2010), here in Victoria BC, where he and his family emigrated in 1995ish.

    He was a superb conductor - he worked extensively with the University and Youth orchestras in Victoria - and a truly wonderful human being, who is still greatly missed. He conducted them jointly in Mahler 8 in 2000, a performance (well actually two) which nobody who attended will forget.

    No matter who wrote the oboe concerto (Grove agrees that it is spurious or doubtful) I'll be interested to hear it.

  3. this is a beautiful recording. thank you!
