James Jolly

James Jolly focuses on the oboe in settings ranging from orchestral works to chamber pieces. Plus Beethoven's Cello Sonata No 5 and Mozart's String Quintet No 3 in G minor.

James Jolly focuses on the oboe in settings ranging from orchestral works to chamber pieces and including some unusual textures in compositions by Britten, MacMillan, Poulenc and Rutter. He concludes the current Sunday cycle of Beethoven Cello Sonatas with the recording of No.5 by Matt Haimovitz (cello) and Christopher O'Riley (fortepiano). Prompted by a listener's recommendation of a work chosen for its suitability for Sunday listening, this week's Sunday Supplement piece is Mozart's String Quintet No.3 in G minor. James also includes further celebrated recordings by the violinist Arthur Grumiaux.
