Leon Goossens (1897-1988)
Scion of a famous musical family, Goossens enjoyed a long career as the leading oboist of his time. He was a great catch for the National Gramophonic Society, starring in some of its most popular and successful issues. The first, Mozart’s Oboe Quartet, was well suited to acoustical horn recording, deployed here by Parlophone’s Oscar Preuss (1889-1958), who many years later gave George Martin his start in the record business. Equally successful was the opening Sinfonia of Bach’s cantata No.156, played one to a part by Goossens and members of the Spencer Dyke Quartet, sparely and expressively.
