Do Not Fear the 21st Century Oboe Music
The Christopher Rouse Oboe Concerto was composed in 2004 and is a beautiful, interesting, fun piece. Like any complex work of serious music, though, it can frighten and intimidate a potential listener. "You mean I have to listen to 20 minutes of non-tonal solo oboe with a percussion-heavy orchestral accompaniment? Really?"
In this recital, I will explain and explore the piece, featuring along the way performances of more familiar works by Vivaldi, Bozza and others. This hour of music will leave you inspired and ready to dare another new music concert in the future.
