Composed for Oboe and Piano accompaniment, Piece V by César Franck is a melodious piece for intermediate players.
The piece begins with a quiet introduction starting Andantino quasi allegretto. The main theme is then played twice with the Piano introducing each phrases followed by the Oboe repeating them. The piece ends in a really nice harmony between the Oboe and the Piano.
There is no major difficulty in this really soft work which would be thoroughly enjoyed by the audience during a recital.
