Reed Warblers began as a trio in 2010 and became a quartet in 2013. Throughout the East Midlands, concert audiences have enjoyed a great variety of repertoire ranging from mediaeval to contemporary, folk, jazz and popular music. Inspired by the Amoris Quartet, formed by Jennifer Paull in 1996 with the purpose of creating an awareness of the kaleidoscopic possibilities of the oboe family, Reed Warblers have followed their example. Adding the oboe d’amore, more often found in Bach’s music, to the classical trio of two oboes and cor anglais, and including a bass oboe to complete the quartet, Reed Warblers present a unique soundscape.
