Nicholas Daniel


Chamber works for oboe



Rich and powerful musical language and a strong sense of drama have made Scottish-American composer Thea Musgrave (b.1928) one of the most respected and exciting contemporary voices. This recording by star oboist Nicholas Daniel features a collection of Musgrave’s chamber works for oboe composed between 1960 and 2009 and includes several works written especially for Daniel. Joined by flutist Emer McDonough, oboist James Turnbull, clarinetist Joy Farall, pianist Huw Watkins and members of the Chilingirian Quartet, Daniel plays eight works in a variety of combinations ranging from duos to quartets.
