Title

Exploring Meter and Mode: A Musical Piece for Oboe and Piano

Abstract

My piece is written for oboe and piano. In it, I play with traditional techniques of solo instrument and piano repertoire by incorporating the Dorian mode as well as a quickly changing metrical structure. To balance these two non-traditional techniques, my piece is arranged in a simple three-part ABA structure. The opening and closing A sections present a theme of longing in the oboe (an instrument well-suited to the expression of yearning) and play with raising and lowering the sixth degree of the key. The B section contrasts the A by demonstrating a contrapuntal interplay between oboe and piano, effectively equalizing the two instruments before returning again to the original melody. I will present brief analytical remarks about my composition before it is performed.
