This lovely concert features two works specifically written for the rare combination of oboe, violin, cello and piano. The first is a tuneful and attractive quartet written just after the war by Czech émigré Bohuslav Martinů. This amazing and still under-rated composer, whose retentive memory for music was literally prodigious, probably wrote it in his head while on a long evening walk before returning to his Manhattan brownstone to jot it down. The second is the world premiere of a work by acclaimed young Australian Lachlan Skipworth, whose new Oboe Quartet is a musical portrait of the couple in whose memory it was commissioned, reflecting their shared love of Bach, their hobbies, and characters in its vibrant colours, interlaced lines and lively textures.
