Vicious Circle. Composed by Enjott Schneider. This edition: Sheet music. Oboe Library. Downloadable. Duration 4:30. Schott Music - Digital #Q11700. Published by Schott Music - Digital (S9.Q11700).

In his new composition for oboe and harpsichord, Enjott Schneider deals with the 'circulus vitiosus', the vicious circle. The 'circulus' describes a fast whirling circular motion in rondo form which incorporates certain musicological diabolic features such as the tritone ('diabolus in musica'), sliding chromaticism and 'Devil’s trills'. The soloist is free to extend his own diabolesque fantasies further in a cadenza (ad lib.). The work can also be performed with piano or organ accompaniment.

Le “circulus” décrit un mouvement tournant rapide et tourbillonnant en forme de rondo qui incorpore certains traits diaboliques de l’histoire de la musique tels que le triton (le “diabolus in musica”), des glissements chromatiques et “trilles du diable”. Dans une cadence (ad lib,), le soliste peut exprimer ses propres idées diaboliques. L'accompagnement de l'œuvre peut se faire au piano ou à l'orgue.
