For Elise

A composition for Oboe and Piano written to mark the birth of the composers grand-daughter.

The piece is a sweet piece of one movement lasting just under 3.30.

it is a piece that students of the oboe will enjoy learning and playing. The standard for an oboist is around grade 5. The pianist needs to be competent and around grade 7 or upwards in standard. This is also a good piece for college students to work on together as a performance piece.

This piece is reflective, and would serve well for a performance at a school concert, in a church, or as a meditative piece.

The composition benefits from practice individually, with a coming together of players before the performance date and will give the performers the experience of practicing individually as well as together.

Breath control is key for the oboist as after the introduction the oboe plays right through without break. The piece will challenge and teach the need for breath control to the performer whether they are seasoned or a student.

The pianist will experiences wide stretches and may have to work out which notes can be lost due to the stretch involved and the notation of the chords without affecting the overall largesse of piano sound.

Dynamics are also important and both players will need to work on getting this right as there are waves of dynamics in very spaces during the piece.

Keeping time is also important as the players will play in counter rhythms including triplets against standard syncopted quaver beats, in short spaces, thereby creating a challenge for the perfomrers to listen to themsleves and count, rather than relying upon the other performer for the timing.

The MP3 file, (that can be found here: is NOT a true representation of the piece as it is a basic extract from the composition software and is too harsh a representation of the piece. It requires a performance to be recorded. Contact the composer if you are interested in creating a recording. A recording must not be undertaken without prior permission of the publisher and composer.

ALL rights are held by Galactic Publishers Limited and the piece cannot be reproduced, recorded or re-arranged in any form without permission.
