A rush of pure energy, Steve Reich’s Mallet Quartet showcases his masterful use of minimal instrumentation to create a rich and dramatic sound.

Bach’s music is centuries away from minimalism, but in common with Reich’s Quartet, has a driving momentum that propels his glittering harmonies forward – qualities that make his work immensely satisfying to hear. In Bach’s oboe concerto, here arranged for percussion, oboe, and strings, that sense of motion provides energy for a bright, joyful work.

The Debussy Rhapsodie is a famous orchestral piece, arranged here for oboe and strings by our Principal Cor Anglais, Alexandre Oguey. It is a beautiful, intimate rendition of Debussy’s colourful music.
