This double CD compiles recordings of 20th century oboe concertos made in recent years with the RSO Frankfurt's solo oboist Fabian Menzel. The selection does not attempt to be representative of oboe composition at the end of the last century, since such a repertoire is to extensive and varied. The five pieces presented in this edition, however, are interesting and significant contributions to the genre and vary greatly in terms of their conception.

Andrei Eshpai - Symphony No.4 & No.5
EAC | FLAC+CUE+LOG | SCANS | 1CD | 292 MB | Fsonic
XX Century Classical | Label: Russian Disc

Andrei Eshpai was born in Kosmodemhansk 15 May 1925. He was educated at the Moscow Conservatory from 1948-1953 (piano under Sofronitsky; composition under Rakov, Miaskovsky and Golubev). Postgraduate study under Aram Khachaturian from 1953-1956.
His musical expressive means are very unusual due to his usage of the folklore of his native Mari people. Typically his colourful orchestral sound seems to distill the essence of the natural world of the far north. He uses syncopated rhythms; his rhythms seem to be related to the music of Bartok. He uses often alternations of ostinato-tuttis and rhythmic shifts from folklore music.
Here I present the second of two CD's I own with his works.

The Goldberg Variations stands as one of the greatest keyboard works ever written. Composed for a two-manual harpsichord, its universal musical language and distinct voicing has made it a popular subject for arrangement, including those for two pianos by Joseph Rheinberger, for woodwind quartet by Andrei Eshpai, for organ by Jean Guillou, and for solo guitar by József Eötvös, as well as the brilliantly re-imagined Gilded Goldbergs by Robin Holloway.
