La Montagnard by Napoleon Coste
performed by Ric Larsen and Lisa Cunningham
Napoleon Coste's duos for oboe and guitar and the beginning of the literature as we can verifiably know it. It happens that all of the pieces are quite nice but even if they weren't they would be important for being the foundation of the repertoire. As I was saying just seconds ago, of course, the duets are all worthy of your time. Every oboe and guitar duo gets to Coste's literature at some point or another and it's easy to hear why. I haven't found that many videos where an duo goes through the entire piece in one go.
