Product Details


Camille Saint-Saëns (1835-1921) wrote three sonatas for wind instruments the year that he died, his SONATA FOR OBOE in D Major, Op. 166, being the first. These works were part of the composer's efforts to expand the solo repertoire for less commonly used instruments, writing to a friend, "At the moment I am concentrating my last reserves on giving rarely considered instruments the chance to be heard." The piece is dedicated to Louis Bas, first solo oboe with the Societé du Conservatoire de l'Opéra.
