A delightful recording of music for oboe, bassoon, and piano.

Two colleagues from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, oboist John Dee and bassoonist Timothy McGovern, join pianist Cara Chowning in a program of music for winds and piano. The composers hail from the U.K., Germany, Italy, Canada and the U.S. The program includes two trios for oboe, bassoon and piano; two works for oboe and piano and two works for bassoon and piano. All three performers have enjoyed active performing and academic careers. Dee served as principal oboe of the Florida Philharmonic and Florida Opera and McGovern is principal bassoon of the Illinois Symphony Orchestra as well as the bassoonist for the Prairie Winds Woodwind Quintet. In addition to her performance schedule, Chowning was music director of Opera Cleveland's Great Works Outreach Department.

Review:
“…very well-played indeed, a pleasant and cheerful program. Both double-reed soloists are seasoned veterans…The experience shows in the technical assurance of their playing, the warm but vibrant tone, expressive phrasing, and the easy assumption of idiom.” (Fanfare)
University of Illinois professors Dee and McGovern are joined by former teaching colleague Cara Chowning in this recording of likeable, tonal pieces from Italy, Germany, the UK, and North America…This would be ideal for people looking for some accessible double reed pieces that are off the beaten path.
