This engaging collection presents an unusual coupling of Mozart’s Oboe Quartet, a work full of humour and charm, and an anonymous arrangement for oboe quintet of his String Quintet No. 2, K406, itself adapted from the earlier Wind Serenade, K388. The Divertimento, Op. 9 by the Finnish composer and clarinettist Crusell, is a fluent work with an attractively fresh melodic vein. The elegant Oboe Quartet by J.C. Bach, the ‘London’ Bach, is one of a set of concertante quartets by Bach and his friend C.F. Abel, published in several different versions as was the custom at the time.
