The first volume of a two-volume anthology presenting attractive repertoire for oboe and piano from the sixteenth century to the present day. Carefully graded selection of tuneful pieces. Well-crafted and idiomatic arrangements provide practice of the keys, note-ranges and fingering patterns encountered in the earlier grades. Wide range of material, from Bach to Beizai and from Handel to Hindemith. Each volume presents the pieces in chronological order and prints the year in which they were written.
