Performed by Elaine Douvas, oboe Accompaniment: Erik Nielsen, piano This wonderful album for the beginning to early intermediate oboe player includes thirteen pieces ranging from Boccherini to Grieg to Richard Strauss to William Walton. Says James Roe of The Double Reed: "With the poise of a great virtuoso, [Ms. Douvas] approaches these 'easy' pieces as she would a solo line in a great symphony...the richness of her tone, the variety in her articulation, and the beauty and clarity of her line all represent the very best example for students as they develop their concept of playing. And it's all pretty inspiring for us professional oboists as well." Ms. Douvas's extensive performance notes "are a delight, and will be inspiring to students and an important aid to teachers." Includes a complete printed solo part annotated with performance suggestions and access to online recordings with complete versions (with soloist) followed by piano accompaniments to each piece, minus the soloist.

    I also wish there was a piano part. It's a lovely collection and would love for my students to play with a live piano.

    As a second year player, these pieces have challenged me. I love the selections. The main criticism is there is not piano sheet music accompaniment, so you can't use any of these for a recital.
