This work is in five movements: Alex I, Interlude I (Allegreto), Alex II (Spritely), Interlude II (Adagio), and Alex III (Allegro vivace). The first movement was written when the composer was a student in 1971. In 1995, oboist Alex Klein suggested that the composer write more music for oboe, perhaps a continuation of the original Alex piece. This is the result. Alex II and Alex III can be viewed as variations on the original. Alex I uses some contemporary notation and lacks bar lines, the rest of the piece is more conventional in notation. The duration is about 10 minutes. Click on the cover image to view the first page of the music.

Ob207: La Seine for solo English Horn by James Matheson. Theodore Pressser Co. 2011/2014, SS, 3 pages. James Matheson (1970-) is an American composer. Inspired by Joan Mitchell's expressionist painting La Seine, Matheson's work parallels the painting in its wildly energetic exploration of texture. Matheson covers much ground within 4 minutes, and this is at times a study in tremolos between contrasting fingerings for one pitch, creating timbral intensity. La Seine was commissioned by the Albany Symphony for its English hornist Nathan Fossner. It has many rapid passages (much more than what is shown in the sample) and a range to F above the staff.

Ob184: Sonate No. 1 in E minor for oboe and guitar by Ferdinand Rebay. Philomele Editions, SS. Ferdinand Rebay (1880-1953) was an Austrian composer. He wrote 600 pieces for guitar apparently inspired by his niece Gertha Hammerschmied. This is unusual as original works for oboe and guitar are uncommon. It is a substantial work in four movements: I. Lebhaft bewegt, doch nicht zu schnell; II Minuet and Trio; III. Sehr ruhig, doch nicht schleppend; and IV. Rondo (Frisch bewegt). The writing for both instruments is charming and quite idiomatic and, for the oboist particularly, quite demanding.

G090: Sonic Portals Trio for Oboe, Horn & Piano by Simon A. Sargon. 2004, SB. Commissioned by the Texas Music Teacher's Association.
