Vilém Veverka's Supraphon debut
Vilém Veverka, the winner of a number of international competitions and an acclaimed soloist, releases his album debut. The repertoire for solo oboe is sparse, yet oboists can boast of a true gem: the inspiration brought to Benjamin Britten by the oboe and the verse of the Roman poet Ovid gave rise to the cycle Six Metamorphoses. A similar abundance of characters is also rendered by the collection of Twelve Fantasias by G. P. Telemann, one of the most productive composers of all time. A repertoire spanning the period between Baroque and contemporary music is one of the most salient features of Vilém Veverka.
