Program Notes

commission: Richard Bales; dedication: to Ron Barnett; premiere: 14 May 1972, National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., James Scott(guitar), Ron Barnett(percussion), composer on oboe


Oboe, Guitar and Percussion are equal partners in this difficult ensemble. Free rhythm sections and metric passages are employed. There is an improvisatory cadenza for percussion and a section calling for "quasi Jazz improvisations" from all three players (The improvisations are to be within an established framework). The percussion instruments are commonly available except two sets of five cowbells, glass and wood wind chimes and six log or slit drums. The composition would be appropriate for a graduate or faculty recital. - Reviewed By: Larry Vanlandingham [1]
