Contrasts in Blue
Instrumentation: Mixed Ensemble Instruments: Bassoon, Oboe, Piano
Oboe, Bassoon and Piano: A dramatic and colorful work in two picturesque movements: Evening Shadows and Summer Sea. The music is evocative of the imagery suggested by the titles of the movements and of the musical “blues” as well. The themes of shadows and water also suggest a kinship with the impressionist style of 100 years earlier. This composition is a “must” for advanced players!
