The oboe d’amore was popular during the era of Johann Sebastian Bach. It is known for its less assertive and more tranquil and serene tone than today’s modern oboe. Having fallen out of use in the eighteenth century, it regained popularity with composers in the early twentieth century appearing in works by Richard Strauss, Maurice Ravel, and Tori Takemitsu.

Join Catherine Lee as she explores some of the amazing twenty-first century Canadian repertoire for the oboe d’amore and oboe. Tickets are $16/$11 in advance, and $20/$15 at the door.
