Recordings to celebrate the world of the oboe

by Jeremy Polmear

Most of the albums in this site's catalogue can be streamed or downloaded, but note the comments in the table below. There is one classical-type download site, Presto Classical, where the Oboe Classics catalogue can be accessed directly. For the rest (iTunes, Amazon digital, CD Baby, Spotify etc) you need to search the site for an individual album - the artist's name usually being the most reliable.

Spotify is the only site that allows you to stream complete tracks for free, though there are Ads from time to time. There are also Spotify playlists, and Following and Sharing them helps Oboe Classics.

There are also digital albums and tracks at - and there are physical versions of some of them, at the bottom of the table.

For all albums and tracks, the best source of information is on this site.
