Title: Oboe Duet - Fanfare
Post by: mjf1947 on March 15, 2020, 08:17:51 AM
Hi all,

So I started a new project.  My oboe teacher the other day brought over some duets to play.  So I decided to write a duet.

Wow!  I really like this piece.  The fanfare portion is quite gripping and moves along very well.  I wonder, however, about the 4/4 interlude starting at m. 34.  Interesting, but to me it seems a little out of character with the rest of the piece.  Maybe because the piece is quite short to begin with, this contrast appears a bit to strong.  Well, my two cents' anyway.

But again, that fanfare is really good!

Thanks ..... wrote this real quick.  The mid-section needs to be expanded.  The idea is a renaissance dance feel as an interlude.

With encouragement  ;D I'll see what I can do with it.

Please note my comment on the woodwinds tone generated in NotePerformer in the other section (NotePerformer).

Okay - Here's a slight variation for the mid-section.

What do you think?

Mark, I think this is a very interesting and intriguing start, evocative of olden styles. What sort of form and duration do you have in mind?

Mark,
 
I think the mid-section could use even more contrast, especially when it starts off, so it's clear right away that it's going in a new direction.
 
Cheers,
Jer

Not sure as yet................ I know the mid-section is just a beginning taste.  And I think I would like to add more movements ..... just need to get out of this corona virus slump!

Okay for those interested  ;D and those who may not be so inlcined  :'(

I did some tweaking and additions  :o ... nothing to grand or earth shattering.

Hope you enjoy it.

Comments always appreciated.  :angel:

Time to move on to a new project.

There is surely something special about the double-reed duos. I think this is an interesting addition to your catalog. Kudos to you for such prolificity! :)

Thank you!  My Oboe instructor/mentor really liked it too.

Beautiful job, Mark, displaying your usual wit and invention.
 
My only caveat is the minor 7th in bar 44, which has a harshness unlike anything else in the piece.
 
Cheers,
Jer

Jer,

Here's a modification which I believe keeps my intention and lessens the impact of the 7th in measure 44.

I am very pleased you enjoyed the work ..... and as always the kind words ........

I think that works better. The passing of the G# under the F# is just momentary and doesn't register as harshly.
 
Cheers,
