There were delectable solos from Mariam Adam (clarinet) and Armand Djikoloum (oboe). .

This was followed by a performance of the Concerto for Oboe and Orchestra by Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958) with the hugely talented Armand Djikoloum, who was born and brought up in France, as the soloist. Written during the Second World War, when Vaughan Williams was in his seventies, the concerto is renowned for its lyricism and virtuoso showmanship. In the suave and technically superb grip of Mr Djikoloum and the orchestra the work was given a trenchant outing of which the composer would have been proud.
