Editorial Reviews

Review

...a sure-fire showstopper. His sound is, as always, sweet and pliant, one of the most luxuriant on records. -- American Record Guide, January/February 2005

This is indeed a recording for the serious collector: interesting, original, and excellent in every way. -- Fanfare, January/February 2005

Product Description

Mark Weiger proves on this disc that double tonguing, triple tonguing, and circular breathing are not ony possible on the oboe but can be done with musicality and panache. "With every 16th note Weiger made the music come to life", said the New York Times about a Weiger performance. Weiger is leader of the Wizards! double reed consort, which has two highly-acclaimed CDs on the Crystal label. He is Oboe Professor at the University of Iowa.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oboe Wizardry May 18, 2010
Mark Weiger has both tone and technique to convincingly showcase this challenging, yet touching music for oboe.
The two virtuosic Lalliet pieces by themselves justify the album's purchase price. The melodies within
"Fantasie on Flotow's Martha" are played in heart-rending manner amidst the fireworks. Then there are those
knock-your-hat-off Carnival of Venice variations...better than a hot fudge sundae! Weiger renders stunning
nuances and perfect transients throughout the entire program. Sonics are well-balanced, with Arthur Rowe's piano
balanced just right, nicely framing Weiger's exquisite playing. (It must be nice never having to breathe.)
This collection deserves highest praise, and will likely become one of which you'll never tire.
