Music for Solo Oboe by Women Composers

 

oboe

 

I have been collecting music by women composers for solo oboe the last eight years and to date have over 70 pieces to choose from, many of the pieces specially written.
 
Sample Programme for a 50 minute Concert
The Piper of Dreams Op 14...................Ruth Gipps
Pastoral Triptych..................................Priaulx Ranier
Midsummer's Night's Dream.................Liz Williams
A Reed in the Wind..............................Julia Usher
The Imperfect U.................................Jane Serter
Presages, Recit and Variations.............Elizabeth Lutyens
A Little Mother's Letter........................Catherine Pluygers

This works well as a " short " concert of about 40-50 minutes and can also be supplemented to be presented as a full length recital. 
To date I have given performances of this show both in the UK and abroad including at the London New Wind Festival, Chard Festival of Women in Music, Kings College Conference for Women and Gender in Education, COMA Summer School, Bath Spa University, Women in Music Conference, Dartmouth College Music Department USA, University of Hong Kong, RHTK Radio, Hong Kong.
