We’re delighted to announce the release of a new recording of Stephen Dodgson oboe chamber works performed by James Turnbull (oboe), Libby Burgess (piano) and a number of other talented artists (see below).
This third album in the Toccata Classics survey of the chamber music of London-born Stephen Dodgson (1924–2013) shows a master-craftsman at work: Dodgson fuses a Baroque sense of clarity, a modern English elegance that has echoes of Britten and Tippett and a hint of eastern European mystery. His writing for oboe has a strong sense of narrative, touching a range of moods, from deep emotion to tongue-in-cheek fun.
James Turnbull, oboe
Libby Burgess, piano
Eleanor Turner, harp
Robyn Allegra Parton, soprano
The recording is available to buy now at Toccata Classics (https://toccataclassics.com/product/stephen-dodgson-chamber-music-three/), Amazon and all good record shops.
