Programme Notes
Colin Matthews Oboe Quartet no. 2 My Second Oboe Quartet was promised to the Berlin Oboe Quartet after a performance which they gave of my first quartet in January 1988. Composed in the autumn of 1989, the work is, like the earlier quartet, in a single movement, with quite a complex structure of overlapping variations; but the oboe has more of a concertante role, and the music is on the whole faster and more concentrated. It lasts around 9 minutes. The first performance was given by the Berlin Oboe Quartet in a Park Lane Group Concert in the Purcell Room, London, in February 1990. Colin Matthews
