A capricious, lyrical, and nostalgic work, it is often considered to be Vaughan Williams' most successful work in this form. The first movement is pastoral in feeling. The second movement begins with a minuet, light and staccato in nature with a middle section featuring a musette's characteristic long-held drone played by the oboe with the melody in the strings. The third movement is a scherzo and two trios.

    This is my favorite oboe piece of all time. It is incredibly beautiful and challenging. The piece is characteristically English, as we would expect form Vaughan-Williams. Be warned, it is incredibly difficult and very depression throughout most of the piece. I have had this copy for years and have...

    been working up to some day being good enough to play it. The Poulenc Oboe Sonata is a good stepping stone to help prepare for this piece. I highly recommend this product.
