    Oboe Concerto

    (John Woolrich)

     

    This concerto for oboe was written by the English composer John Woolrich after it had been commissioned for the oboist Nicholas Daniel by the BBC.

     

    It was given its world premiere at the BBC Promenade Concert in 1996 by Nicholas Daniel and the performance brought him and the piece much critical acclaim.

     

    The work has featured on the CD John Woolrich: Ghost in the Machine where it is performed by Nicholas Daniel and the BBC Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Martyn Brabbins.

     

    It was heard on BBC Radio 3’s series Hear and Now in September 2005 in their broadcast entitled Portrait of John Woolrich.
