Audiophile Audition’s Robert Moon gave a 4-star review to a collection of oboe concertos that includes Amor Vincit Omnia.
Elis Pehkonen’s Amor Vincit Omnia for Oboe d’amore and Double String Orchestra completes the disc. At 8+ minutes it lives up to its title – in this case, love for melody conquers all.
