Oboe Quartet

for oboe, violin, viola, and cello


Oddysey Chamber Players

Brooklyn Academy of Music

Oboe Quartet was commissioned by Mark Hill, and is in three movements. "Dialogues" refers on the surface to the obvious "conversation" between oboe and strings, but also to the interaction between highly charged, chromatic musicand serene tonal-modal passages, withe high tension musikc winning out. "Intyermezzo" is largely peaceful resolutionof the tension orf the first movement, with one surprisiungly intense climax. "Scherzo" is a light song and sdance, with much of the energy of the first movement, but none of the tension
