The combination of flute, oboe and piano is an evocative and atmospheric one, here explored by seven varied composers. Flautist Nancy Ruffer, oboist John Anderson and pianist Helen Crayford bring a telling fluidity and spontaneity to a succession of delightful scores. Goossens's sunlit Pastorale et Arlequinade Op. 1924 is followed by Madeleine Dring's three movement Trio and Sir Richard Rodney Bennett's Sounds and Sweet Aires, also in three movements. Edward McGuire's Three Dialogues and Thea Musgrave's Impromptu are both two-way instrumental conversations for flute and oboe, the Musgrave being more light-hearted. Rhian Samuel's Shadow Dance features fragments of a dance tune, which undergo a central catharsis before the tune emerges in a gentle 6/8. The programme ends with Malcolm Arnold's Suite Bourgeoise, five delightful movements written at the beginning of WWII whilst Arnold was still in his teens, but little known because he had mislaid the scores for over fifty years.

“... some highly attractive and unusual music ...” “Every one of these scores is well worth the attention of music lovers and I welcome the programme unreservedly.” Robert Matthew-Walker, International Record Review, June 2007
