Describes the life and achievements of the most prolific composer of oboe music in the nineteenth century. This book attempts to stimulate appreciation of Gustave Vogt (1781-1870) as musician and historical personality. It brings together portraiture, personal correspondence, concert reviews, autographs, and countless other documents including Vogt's Conservatoire exam reports, a detailed work list of Vogt's compositions, and the first complete transcription and translation of his unpublished oboe method.

Author Biography

Geoffrey Burgess combines musicological research with an international career as oboist. After studies in Sydney, Australia, he was granted a Dutch Government Scholarship to study Baroque oboe with Ku Ebbinge. From the mid-1980s he has performed extensively in Europe, Australia, and more recently the United States. Geoffrey completed a doctoral degree degree at Cornell University in 1997 and his dissertation was awarded the Donald J. Grout Award.
