  4. “Gabriel’s Oboe” has been a modern favorite of mine since I first heard it decades ago.
    And what’s not to like about the Renoir portrait?

    I’d not heard of the film, and never heard this piece. It’s exquisite. I’m not sure how I missed it, but I’m glad for the introduction. Now, I’ll have to see the film.

    Gabriel’s oboe came to me in a dream, which led me to watch the movie….I broke down in tears when they cut the chain that bound him to that ugly armor….and realized that I needed to shed the hard shell of my work life persona and retire, or I would not survive much longer. The type of work i did took me too far from my true self.

    What a piece of music, and on the cello… I love this instrument and this perfomer, Capuçon, is great.
