The French oboist Gabriel Pidoux, voted 'Instrumental Soloist of the Year' at the Victoires de la Musique Classique in 2020, has made a name for himself in both early and modern repertories. He now records his first solo album, accompanied by the pianist Jorge González Buajasan. It presents the works of two female and three male composers, beginning with Robert Schumann's Three Romances, a masterpiece of chamber music with oboe, which Gabriel Pidoux has decided to juxtapose with the Three Pieces of Leopold Wallner (1847-1913), magnificent works which have never been recorded. Also on the program is a transcription of Clara Schumann's Three Romances. 'These are pieces from the heart, which set the Romantic tone', writes Gabriel Pidoux. 'We follow them with the Poème of Marina Dranishnikova (1929-94), the only known piece by this Russian composer. It is a rather dark, very tormented piece, wholly Romantic although composed somewhat later, in the middle of the twentieth century.' Finally, a transcription of Elgar's famous Salut d'amour rounds off the program.
