Quite amazing what astonishing musical colours and sound effects an ensemble of three reed instruments can achieve. To be heard on the new album with Swiss music legend Heinz Holliger. The title »Les Roseaux Chantants», the »singing reeds», refers to the double reed through which the oboe and cor anglais (and also the bassoon) are blown to set the air vibrating and produce sounds. Works by Ludwig van Beethoven, the Swiss composer Rudolph Ganz (1877-1972), Anton Wranitzky and Heinz Holliger. A fascinating sound and musical experience.
Heinz Holliger, born 1939 in Langenthal, Switzerland, pursues a worldwide career as an oboist, conductor and composer and has recorded more than 350 works, starting in 1963. His recordings as a conductor include the complete symphonies, overtures and concerti by Robert Schumann, the complete Schubert symphonies, as well as important works by Bernd Alois Zimmermann and Charles Koechlin. His latest release are works for 2 Oboes and Cor Anglais, featuring besides works by Beethoven and Wranitzky, the unknown two pieces „The little Sphinx“ and „The little Elf“ by Swiss composer Rudolph Ganz and three short pieces, that Holliger himself has composed in 2020.
