The combination of oboe, bassoon, and piano makes a wonderful sound, especially when the oboe is played by one of the instrument’s legendary exponents. Frenchman Maurice Bourgue, now in his late 70s, still plays with fabulous control and style, and can make a line genuinely sing. His two colleagues, Sergio Azzolini (bassoon) and Kimiko Imani (piano), play with enormous sympathy and clearly enjoy this music. Haydn, characteristically, spins magic while J.S. Bach’s two sons find inspiration in this unusual lineup, writing music of charm and elegance.
