The Biglake Oboe Quartet is a classical ensemble featuring the smooth and elevating sound of the oboe. Most commonly heard in symphonic repertoire with heartbreaking melodies soaring over the other instruments, we are pairing this unique sound with the beautiful string trio. The two greatest works of classical music for this ensemble were written by Mozart, and Britten, which we will present each with a string trio introduction from their respective time periods, the 18th and 20th centuries. We’ll be closing the concert with a crowd favourite, Ennio Morricone’s “Gabriel’s Oboe”, from the movie “The Mission”. See you there!
