Repertoire Note

Stemming from a suggested commission of an oboe concerto or suite, this music (when published in 1936) represented as Stephen Banfield asserts "the first real manifestation of Finzi’s mature idiom". The demanding solo part is underpinned with idiomatic string writing, as the music evolves with a natural flowing momentum. The work has a cyclic feeling to it, with a concluding memorable fff return to part of the opening. Its power of expression makes it rewarding for players and listeners alike.
