    Gabriel Grovlez (1879-1944) studied under Gabriel Fauré at the Paris Conservatoire. His compositions proved to be extremely versatile, from Operas and Ballets to solo works. Grovlez's Sarabande et Allegro is a sublime addition to the Oboe repertoire. Much of the composer's works show neo-classical features, which is also the case in Sarabande et Allegro where the texture is predominantly melody-dominated homophony, perfect cadences are frequently heard and modulations to related keys occur. Grovlez's in D Minor Sarabande is in a steady, triple metre, superbly contrasted by the fast Allegro, composed in the relative Major. All these features make for an enjoyable and delightful performance.
