Imagine it is 1947. In February of that year Aberdeen Chamber Music Club had the pleasure of listening to the Carter Trio and Leon Goosens play some beautiful Oboe Quartets. Among them was The Fantasy Quartet by E.J. Moeran.

They also played Mozart’s Oboe Quartet K370. You can listen to a recording of Leon Goosens here, unfortunately not with the Carter Trio but with the Lener Quartett
