CD new releases – NDR Kultur (Germany)

The Britten Oboe Quartet has released a CD in memory of Nicholas Daniel’s teacher.

What a beautiful present – to dedicate a CD to one’s own teacher: the oboist Nicholas Daniel plays ‘A Tribute to Janet’ with his Britten Oboe Quartet, it’s a nod to his teacher Janet Craxton. Mozart is on the programme, along with Britten, Knussen and Françaix – fine recordings, played here with plenty of spirit and subtle humour.
