Dark scenes of winter

John BloodGZ026
Bass Oboe or Tenor Saxophone and Piano | Duration: 15 minutes

A large four–movement sonata, commissioned in 1981 by Richard Smith, then principal oboist of the BBC Symphony Orchestra. A slow, enigmatic first movement is followed by a mechanistic scherzo, a lyrical adagio, and a fast finale which builds to an intense climax. It was first performed by Richard Smith (bass oboe) and John Lindsay (piano) at a British Music Society concert in Chelsea College on 22nd April 1982. This edition includes an alternative part for Tenor Saxophone.
