The divine Diana Doherty plays Ross Edwards’ mesmerising Oboe Concerto on this Australia’s first classical CD single! The music of Ross Edwards is haunting and evocative.
Composed especially for Diana Doherty, Ross Edwards has sought, in his Oboe Concerto, to imbue the traditional concerto with elements of theatre, ritual and dance, whilst preserving its concert hall function as an accompanied soloistic display.
As we have come to expect from this composer, the texture is dominated by an almost kaleidoscopic interplay of material gleaned from the natural environment and diverse cultural sources, whose symbolic meaning remains ultimately and tantalisingly elusive.
Also on this special classical CD single are two other works by Ross Edwards playing by Diana Doherty - Ulpirra and Yanada.
