    Do a Duet
    2 oboes ❧
    oboe and bassoon
    2 bassoons ❧
    $11.99 each order now

    Do a Duet is an upbeat exploration in timbres and harmonies. Listen for the fourths, thirds, and tritones. The trick is to find the balance you want between the two instruments to best display new timbres in the contrasting parts as well as in the unison or octave parts. In this rather intense piece, the two instruments also play with counterpoint and with call and response. Classical contemporary.

    2 oboes ❧
    2 bassoons ❧

A good tune for studies in chromaticism. In sections of the tune, one part continues where the other part left off to stimulate the listening and complementing skills of the players. Wide variety of dynamics. Good for festivals, concerts, and competitions. Classical contemporary.


    Bay Cruise (2 oboes, oboe and bassoon, or oboe and flute)

    $14.99 order now

    Triumvirate explores chromaticity and the wonderfully haunting blend of oboe and bassoon sounds.

Intermediate level, classical contemporary.

    Cloud Dances (flute, oboe, clarinet, horn in F, bassoon)
    $29.99 order now

    Cloud Dances was influenced by the ever-changing, always beautiful clouds in the skies of Santa Fe. The dances reflect the visuals in different shapes, colors, and moods of four time spans.

    Dance 1 introduces the variety of clouds sculpted by winds. Dance 2 combines a tango rhythm with occasional clave beats for a contemporary type of Latin cloud reverie. Dance 3 in 7/8 presents a somewhat unexpected cloud experience with a regular irregular beat. Dance 4 slowly smooths out a moving harmonic cloud cover across the horizons.

    A commission on behalf of Kammermusik Workshops, Inc. Fun to play. Classical contemporary for advanced players and skilled intermediate players. About 8 minutes.
