Part One:

Part Two:

Yet another wonderful slow movement where a composer “gifts” the oboist. Thank you, Mr. Barber!

I just love this work. 🙂


  1. I adore that second movement. The whole piece is amazing, but that second movement…ahhhh…achingly beautiful. Beautiful playing in this video too!

  2. It’s an incredible momement, isn’t it? At first I only posted that one, but figured some folks might want to hear the whole thing.

    I tried to write a poem about the movement once, but words can’t come close ….
