This wonderful album for the beginning to early intermediate oboe player includes thirteen pieces ranging from Boccherini to Grieg to Richard Strauss to William Walton.

Says James Roe of The Double Reed: "With the poise of a great virtuoso, [Ms. Douvas] approaches these ‘easy’ pieces as she would a solo line in a great symphony…the richness of her tone, the variety in her articulation, and the beauty and clarity of her line all represent the very best example for students as they develop their concept of playing. And it’s all pretty inspiring for us professional oboists as well." Ms. Douvas’s extensive performance notes "are a delight, and will be inspiring to students and an important aid to teachers."

Includes a complete solo part printed on high-quality ivory paper, annotated with performance suggestions and a compact disc with complete versions (with soloist) followed by piano accompaniments to each piece, minus the soloist.
