Talented oboist Liesbeth Allart performs live at Lauderdale House in a celebration of solo repertoire for the oboe.
In this concert, Liesbeth explores the Oboe’s deeper and more sonorous relations with the Oboe d’Amore and the Cor Anglais. Rarely seen together in a single recital, these instruments first get to display their particular individual qualities in works by CPE Bach, Benjamin Britten, John Rushby-Smith and Vincent Persichetti, after which they join forces in possibly one of the most exciting works ever written for solo oboe: “Solo” by the Italian composer Bruno Maderna.
Liesbeth Allart is a freelance oboist enjoying a varied career. Based in the UK, and with family ties in the Netherlands and Ireland, she has played with orchestras and ensembles throughout Europe, including the BBC Concert Orchestra, RTÉ Concert Orchestra, and the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra, as well as acting as Artistic Director of De Bezetting Speelt, a chamber group in the Netherlands, for ten years. As a keen interpreter of contemporary music, Liesbeth has taken part in the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival and is a regular guest with the Insomnio Ensemble in the Netherlands.
Liesbeth Allart’s solo Oboe Recital will take place at Lauderdale House on 1 April at 7.30pm. Doors open at 7pm.
