The term "chamber music" alone makes one think that such music is created just for a private circle of listeners. In many cases, however, public figures or great virtuosos were the dedicatees of compositions for small instrumental ensembles. Mozart wrote his Oboe Quartet K. 370 for Friedrich Ramm, the first oboist in the Bavarian Elector's orchestra. Heinz Holliger treads in Ramm's footsteps in this recording and proves to be a worthy follower with his rich sound and prominent demeanor. With fitting demureness, the ensemble allows room for the delicate, long-held tones, which the glass harp specialist Bruno Hoffmann conjures up with his nimble fingers - ranging from fine as a hair to bright as a bell.
