Sir Eugene Aynsley Goossens (1893-1962) was an English conductor and composer. Besides his career as a conductor, Goossens was also a skilled composer, completing nearly seventy works including chamber pieces, orchestral works, and two full-length operas. In 1927 he composed his 'Oboe Concerto'. Originally written for his brother Léon's American debut, this 'Concerto in One Movement' for oboe and orchestra continues to be a standard concerto in the oboe repertoire. The concerto was written to showcase his virtuosic technique and lyrical musicality, and it effortlessly combines the two.
Dutch arranger Gerhart Drijvers transcribed the is concerto for Oboe with accompaniment of a Symphonic Band.
