“French composer and teacher, Darius Milhaud (1892-1974) was a prolific composer of the 20th century as a member of 'Les Six'. His compositions remain highly regarded, Concerto for Oboe being no exception. Milhaud's compositions are influenced by jazz and polytonality, as exemplified in Concerto for Oboe, which includes a Piano reduction accompaniment. Composed in 1957, Concerto for Oboe is an alternative, exciting concerto made up of three movements; 1) Animated, 2) With Serenity, and 3) Animated. With a typical performance lasting around 18 and a half minutes, Milhaud makes use of variation in articulation, complex rhythms, chromaticism, altering tempos, variation in dynamics and a wide tessitura, amongst other aspects. Milhaud's Concerto for Oboe is essential to all advanced oboists seeking modern and exciting repertoire.&rdquo.
