Description
Very little is known about Georges Guilhaud other than he was born in 1851 and composed for the oboe. He was a friend of Georges Gillet, Professor of Oboe at the Paris Conservatoire from 1882 until 1920. Many of his compositions, including these pieces, were dedicated to Monsieur Gillet.

The middle section shows the versatility of the instrument before a recapitulation of the first theme ending with the soloist providing and accompaniment for the piano. The Farandole was an open
