About the Artist

Heinz Holliger was born in 1939 in Langenthal, Switzerland, in the canton of Bern. He studied composition with Sándor Veress and Pierre Boulez. He took first prize for oboe at the Geneva International Music Competition in 1959, eventually becoming one of the world's most esteemed oboists; composers who have written works for him include Frank Martin, Olivier Messiaen, Witold Lutoslawski, Luciano Berio, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Elliott Carter, Hans Werner Henze, Krzysztof Penderecki and Isang Yun. Holliger was also instrumental in the rediscovery of works by 18th-century composers Zelenka and Lebrun. As a composer, Holliger's oeuvre covers genres from orchestral, solo and chamber music to stage works and vocal pieces; he has won many prizes, from the Siemens Music Award in 1991 to the first Zurich Festival Award in 2007. Many of his compositions have been recorded by ECM, including Lieder ohne Worte (2000), Scardanelli-Zyklus (vocal works after Hölderlin, 2000), the opera Schneewittchen (Snow White, 2001), Violinkonzert (2004) and Romancendres (2009). As a conductor, he recorded an ECM album of Bernd Alois Zimmermann's music titled Canto di speranza, in addition to leading recordings of his own works. As an oboist, he has recorded music for ECM by the likes of Zelenka, Schumann, Veress, Carter and Isang Yun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Restoration Project August 4, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Heinz Holliger certainly needs no introduction, having been the gold standard for oboe performance for decades as well as a man responsible for keeping the lesser known works of Bach in the recording studios. He is not only a baroque specialist but also a conductor and composer. As an oboist many composers (including Olivier Messiaen, Luciano Berio, Elliott Carter, Frank Martin, Hans Werner Henze, Witold Lutos'awski, Karlheinz Stockhausen, and Isang Yun) have written works for him.

This fascinating recording finds Holliger restoring some of the 'oboe concertos' of Bach's day - a time when extended solo parts were accompanied by orchestra and held such an important role that they could be considered mini-concertos. Here Holliger is joined by Erich Höbarth and the Camerata Bern. The works included are the sinfonia introductions to several sacred cantatas, the sinfonia from the Easter Oratorio and versions of three Bach concertos made for oboe, strings and continuo. These include the sublime Double Concerto for Violin and Oboe, with the solo violin part played by Höbarth. In addition to Bach is Alessandro Marcello's Oboe Concerto in D minor, a piece Bach appreciated enough to rework for solo harpsichord.

The quality of the performances is top notch - fresh, precise, informed....and elegant. Highly recommended. Grady Harp, August 11

5.0 out of 5 stars Holliger 40 (or might it be 50) years on December 17, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It is hard to believe that Heinz Holliger is now more than 70 years old. The grace and dance like grace he brings to this wonderful disc is that of a young man. This record is delightful, and extremely well recorded. Very highly recommended - it will bring a spring to your step.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good old wine is better. July 25, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was a little bit dubious about this record because of Heinz Holliger age but in this special case I have to admit that mr Holliger is playing as always with his sense of line an a perfect intonation with a way of expressing that is more free than before so do not hesitate to buy this excellent record.

5.0 out of 5 stars Splendid, Sumptuous, Magnificent June 4, 2012
By noOne
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't review stuff, or use words like Splendid, Sumptuous, or Magnificent.

This left me feeling simply grateful to have found it.

Its beautiful, like Morimur-I-can't-stop-listening-to-it-year-upon-year-beautiful.

Another day redeemed.

This recording features Baroque ornamentation at its best. The slow movements really are worth taking time out for. Great listening.
