Hello. I'm new here and relatively new to classical music. I don't play any musical instruments and cannot even read music. I like to listen and, if possible, watch. Instead of fast, loud, vibrant movements, I prefer music that brings me to a place of meditative equipoise. I especially like the adagio movements of Carl Nielsen's symphonies and the Beethoven string quartets (esp. Opus 131);
My favorite wind instruments are the clarinet and oboe. Can anyone recommend any compositions (and possibly artists) for these two instruments, either alone or in combination with other instruments? Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to offer.
