I fell in love with this recording immediately. A former oboe player and lover of Baroque classical music, this is one of the best recordings of oboe music that I have heard. There's not a bit of reediness in it, just a pure, expressive, beautiful oboe sound. When I played it for a friend who still plays oboe, he too was impressed and immediately wanted to get a copy. The sonata and piece by Marcello are exquisite gems.

Format: Audio CD
I think that Jozsef Kiss performs in a wondeful way. His soft, beautiful, melliflous sound catches the best, unusual sound of all. The music on this recording is very well chosen and naxos produce absolute quality on every CD. I am an oboe player myself, and the Marcello is so good, that I like to play along with it! The Sonata in A minor for Oboe solo, is well projected with excellent dynamics. Kiss keeps his sound even all the way the performance, and does not lack in sound in the top register and always uses notes in full length. His amazing breath control makes this an even better recording.
I totally disagree with the previous review!

Format: Audio CD
The Marcello is an excellent piece, especially the adagio. Unfortunately, the oboe performance is limp, listless and mechanical. It's remarkable that Kiss can play such an expressive instrument without dynamics and feeling. The recording also features plenty of distracting clicks & clacks from the instrument. Spend a few extra bucks and get a Holliger recording if you can find one.

In light of other reviews I gave this album another careful listen. I stand by my original assessment: the music is excellent, but Kiss is a mechanic, not an artist. "Kiss keeps his sound even all the way [through] the performance." Uh huh. That's exactly the problem. Kiss, it seems, has never heard of crescendo, diminuendo, expressivo, and seldom takes advantage of the instrument's emotive potential. Is some kind of weird music ideology at work here? "There's not a bit of reediness in it, just a pure, expressive, beautiful oboe sound." What? The oboe is a reed instrument--there better be some "reediness." That's what makes the "expressive, beautiful oboe sound" so great.

And yet ... this album is worth buying if you cannot find other performances of the Marcello and the C.P.E. Bach solo sonato. Both adagios and the first allegro of the Bach are superb compositions, and I haven't been able to find a recording of the Bach piece anywhere else. So, now that Amazon allows changes to the star rating, and based on the music selections and unavailability of alternate recordings, I have upgraded my review to three stars.

The discrepancy in the reviews w/ a ridiculous 1* rating from one unsatisfied person has dropped the overall assessment below what the recording merits. I would probably go w/ a 4* rating, so I hope the new addition will raise the CD to that level! I've listen to this disc three times now and thoroughly enjoy the music - agree that the addition of the Marcello piece is a plus, which 'fills out' the CD nicely. I also did a comparison w/ my Holliger performance of the CPE Bach works - give the edge over Holliger, but he's one of my favorite oboists. BTW - the Penguin Guide gives this recording a **(*) rating w/ a good recommendation; at the price, the Naxos production is a great value.
