album notes: "I am honored to have taken part in numerous premieres, and to have been involved in many commissions of new music for the oboe. On this disc is a sampling of five such works, representing a variety of styles. Each one was writen for my colleagues and me, though brought into being by different means – some by commission or commissioning consortium, some written as gifts."
Rebecca Henderson, Professor of Oboe at University of Texas, Austin
