On Holt Avenue - for oboe and piano PDF Print E-mail

Cover: Orange and Lemon by Timothy Decker

On Holt Avenue -
for oboe and piano is a fun, light-hearted piece in four movements.  Written for the oboist Jennifer Mitchell, these pieces portray life 'On Holt Avenue' as told by the composer. 

I. Morning Coffee - a little bit of coffee to get the day going

II. The Lemon Tree - a slow, thoughtful movement with just a touch of jazz as the oboe and piano portray a lemon tree on a rainy day in Southern California.  A short haiku sets the mood of the piece:

The lemon  tree waits-
rain falls on outstretched branches-
How the lemons shine!

III. That Mockingbird... - a constant change of melody and rhythm depicts the mockingbird that sings each and everyday outside of the composer's window.

IV. Daisies - Gerbera daisies are a favorite, and these colorful flowers are portrayed by the oboe and piano in a touching yet sophisticated melodic landscape.
