Civil Sundays: Poulenc’s homage to Prokofiev by way of the oboe

Poulenc, Sonata for Oboe and Piano Op. 185 (dedicated to the memory of S. Prokofiev)

Good humanist sabbath to you.

Bach provides a bonus track for the oboe aficionado, maybe for you, Emma.

I first heard this at the Amherst Summer Music Camp in Raymond, Maine in 1971, Jane Singer on Oboe with whom I played some charming Milhaud chamber music.

And on bassoon in our quintet was Kim Laskowski, now in the New York Philharmonic.
If I am not mistaken Jane is now a computer scientist in Israel.
