Solo oboe performance of La Cigale et la Fourmie
A young musician performs piece no.1 'La Cigale et la Fourmie (d''aprÃ¨s la fontaine)' from 'Cinq piÃ¨ces pour le Hautbois' by Hungarian born American conductor and composer Antal DorÃ¡ti. This 20th century piece by DorÃ¡ti sets Aesop's fable of the ant and the grasshopper to music for solo oboe showcasing the oboe's potential for dexterity, range and diverse timbral qualities that are often indeed insect-like.
