2 Oboists, 1 Score

for two unaccompanied oboes (2010)

 

Inspired by J.S. Bach's Das Musikalische Opfer, in which it is possible to read certain canons in the score upside down as well as the correct way up. 2 Oboists, 1 Score explores the possibility of creating a score that is possible to read and perform from different angles, at the same time, by two seperate players. The result is a duet for two oboes that features canonic elements in homage to Bach himself.

 

Premiered at the Sinfonia Newydd Festival 2011.
