“Vaughan Williams wrote 70 years ago for the English oboist Eugene Goosens. The composer might not
recognize his work now because the oboe, in America, is music richer in sounds and discursive in range.
Deemer exemplifies that revolution. His playing was bold, detailed, and shaped
to fill a broad dynamic range. He caught the composer’s turn of phrase, made lyrical passages sing
with shadings and nuance, and infused the virtuosic passages with color.”
