Richard Elfyn Jones - Sonata for oboe and piano "Viva Altea!"
Richard Elfyn Jones's sonata for oboe and piano, "Viva Altea!" consists of three movements, I: Fiesta en la Playa – con brio; II: Meditaçion – andante con moto; III: Barullo! – allegro con spirito. Fantastically characterful, ranging from the jocular to the solemn, this sonata is a vivid addition to the repertoire.
The Sonata was first performed in St Woolos Cathedral, Newport, on 21st March 2019 by Catherine Tanner Williams (oboe) and Christopher Williams (piano). The pair have also recorded the sonata, which was released on Willowhayne Records in April 2020.
