Sundays are for Beauty - Krommer Oboe Concerto

That's Liam Boisset, 14 year old oboist, performing with the Young People's Symphony Orchestra (YPSO) in San Francisco.

The YPSO, which is the second oldest youth symphony in the nation, was founded in Berkeley, in 1935.

Franz Krommer (1759 - 1831) was considered a strong rival of Beethoven, and his string quartets were compared by some with those of Haydn.

Have a Beautiful Sunday.
