This is a collection of works which include pieces which can be played as solos, duos and ensembles. Written when I was Artist in residence at the Conservatory of Music in Chalons-sur-Saone, France during the academic year 2007-2008, each one page piece is a short musical expression focusing on a specific concept found in contemporary music but written to suit players relatively new to the oboe. These pieces may be included in the normal teaching program and are also perfect for workshops where participants may have very different levels and experience. While these duets are musically satisfying in themselves, they are also etudes which will introduce players to various techniques encountered in more advanced contemporary repertoire. Without being extremely complex technically, they provide challenges in their concept and approach to musicality. They can be played as written, or they may be modified by the teacher and/or performer. Although the compositional details are important, they may be bent with musical taste. For example, improvisations based on the musical material may be inserted; or several movements may be played at the same time. Of course, pieces may be assembled into suites. Feel free to try different tempos, changing tempos, different dynamics, and different methods of sound production, even playing silently. The spatial dimensions of the performance area(s) may also be exploited. These pieces may also be appropriate for use in dance, theater, art, poetry, video, sports etc.
