Rich and powerful musical language and a strong sense of drama have made Scottish-American composer Thea Musgrave (b.1928) one of the most respected and exciting contemporary voices. This CD features chamber works for oboe composed between 1960-2009, including her most recent works written specially for Nicholas Daniel, 'Cantilena', 'Night Windows', 'Take Two Oboes' and an arrangement of 'Threnody' for cor anglais.

Nicholas Daniel’s long and distinguished career began when, at the age of 18, he won the BBC Young Musician of the Year Competition and went on to win further competitions in Europe. At his debut at the BBC Proms in 1992 the Sunday Times described him as one of the greatest exponents of the oboe in the world. Today one of the UK's most distinguished soloists as well as a successful conductor, he has become an important ambassador for music and musicians in many different fields. He was awarded the The Queen’s Medal for Music in 2011.

BBC Total Immersion, Barbican 15th February 2014
The BBC Symphony Orchestra celebrates the 85th birthday of this remarkable composer with a rich tapestry of her engaging and expressive music.

"It was almost cosy. Both Nicholas Daniel and Dame Evelyn Glennie are prominent players of Thea Musgrave’s concertos, and the composer has been a Proms regular for nearly half a century. Now here came another BBC commission, Two’s Company, a double concerto for oboe and percussion that she wrote specifically for these two soloists. The whole work, scored with delicacy and grace, swept forward with a gathering momentum, and the total experience was captivating." The Independent 4th Sept 2007
