One of Humbert Lucarelli’s finest showcases of his instrument artistry ever recorded, “Oboe Sonatas” is a welcome reissue for Oboe enthusiast the world over. The recording starts with American Paul Hindemith. His two movement Sonata for Oboe and Piano was written in 1938, and has remained a benchmark for oboists ever since. Francis Poulenc’s Sonata for Oboe and Piano (1962) was written during Poulenc’s final year in memory of the Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev, and represents a tour d’ force in oboe repertoire, and also the last work Poulenc wrote. French master composer Camille Saint-Saëns displays his deep affinity for the instrument in Sonata for Oboe and Piano, a work which concludes in a movement of dazzling pyrotechnic virtuosity.

Another French composer of the late nineteenth/early twentieth century is Charles-Édouard Lefebvre, whose Deux Piéces pour le Hautbois, provide a delightful compliment to the demanding and powerful work of Saint-Saëns. Humbert Lucarellli’s legendary Oboe Sonatas album, still serves as a high water-mark in the history of oboe performance. Newly re-mastered by Lyrichord's Nick Fritsch, in association with Humbert Lucarelli.
