Product details

The oboe was intimately linked with the Bach family in a number of ways. In this new release CD, acclaimed historical oboe player Geoffrey Burgess and harpsichordist Ann Murphy have compiled an exploration of a hypothetical, imaginary tonal persona.

The voice of the lost Bach oboe. This innovative and imaginative CD draws a musical link between Bach, his contemporaries and relatives, through arrangements and compositions for solo oboe and harpsichord.

Press Quotes

“Burgess, an acknowledged master of the baroque oboe, does not disappoint. The 'quacking duck' sound of the badly played instrument is here transformed into a swan in flight.”

— Kim Lockwood, Herald Sun

“delights with crisp, articulate and impeccably-phrased baroque oboe music.”

The Sunday Mail

“Burgess and Ann Murphy are scintillating”

— Andrew Scott, The Sunday Age

“perhaps Bach simply never met an oboist to meet the intellectual challenges of the mature chamber idiom. Had he heard Geoffrey Burgess he would surely have changed his mind.”

— Harold Love, Recorder and Early Music
