Together with the outstanding Australian oboist Peter Veale, Claus-Steffen Mahnkopf spent years working systematically on music for oboe, its playing techniques and tonal possibilities. The result is the 1994 method book, "The Techniques of Oboe Playing", which has become an authoritative work for oboists throughout the world. Mahnkopf has profound knowledge of this instrument and more than 25 years of experience with it. Vol. 7 of the NEOS Mahnkopf Edition is thus devoted to his compositions for oboe. The recorded works range from "Gorgoneion" for solo oboe from 1990 to the "Homage au hautbois" of 2013, which pays tribute not only to the oboe but also to Mahnkopf's longtime friend Peter Veale.
