Op 34 Oboe Quartet

‘for Janet Craxton’     (10 mins)

Allegro moderato – Vivace (var. 1-5)
Lento liberamente ( var. 6-8)
Vivace   ( var. 9 – 12)
A tempo moderato (coda) 
(10 mins)

The oboe is prominent, as in a concerto. The second section is chordal, impressionistic, with a slower rate of harmonic change. The third section is a developed version of the first section, and the Coda recalls the Introduction. The whole work derives from the 4-note motif announced by the strings in the opening bars.

First performance 19 October 1977, Germany ( Cologne, British Council)
by the London Oboe Quartet , Janet Craxton, Perry Hart, Brian Hawkins, Charles Tunnell
