You can hear a bit of John Mack here, on Composer’s Datebook. Scroll down to January 17, and click on “PLAY TODAY’S PROGRAM”. It’s a short segment, and there’s talking over much of it, but you’ll be hearing Ellen Taaffe Zwilich’s Oboe Concerto, which she wrote for Mack. (He premiered the concerto on January 17, 1991, but you’ll be hearing the premiere recording of the work with the Louisville Orchestra, not the premiere performance with the Cleveland Orchestra.)

  1. Bah, too much talking. Not enough playing. I worked with the webmaster to add a couple more clips on www.oboistgallery.8m.net/. You might enjoy some different sounds coming out of it.
