Three for Flute and Clarinet (in A) is inspired by the mellifluous performing of the Inspirare Duo of the Capital University Conservatory of Music: Dr. Lisa A. Jelle and Dr. Gail L. Zugger.
The Prelude for Horn and Organ was composed for a Hymn Fest on September 11, 2015 honoring the life of Walter R. Bouman, a personal friend of the composer. It is dedicated "To the memory of Rev. Dr. Walter R. Bouman (1929 - 2005)".
The prelude is in ABA form with the organ playing a solo in the middle section. The range of the horn part is between the transposed pitches of F-sharp 4 and E-natural 5. Rhythmically the horn part is very easy.
Music from the Ottawa River where rafts of lumber were floated to sawmills guided by men perched on the logs. The arrangement recalls the vibrant, outdoor life of the raftsmen in a setting for the complete woodwind choir. An earlier version was performed by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra at children’s concerts to demonstrate the woodwind instruments. For Pic, 2Fl, 2Ob, EH, 2Cl, BCl, 2Bn, CBn, 2ASx, TSx, BarSx.
The arranger pouts while stating, “This arrangement can be performed without the English horn and contrabassoon parts.”
There are seven Discourses each treating non-traditional playing techniques and notations. Any number of the seven can be performed in any order. All are for four bassoons except Discourse VI that adds a contrabassoon to the four bassoons. More than one player can play each part.
A very fine recording by Trifecta! (Lori Baruth, clarinet, David Oyen, bassoon and Chialing Hsieh, piano) of works that widen the trio repertoire. The beautifully recorded program includes four first recordings.
A two DVD set with a close-up, detailed, step-by-step demonstration of the reed making process using gouged, shaped and profiled (GSP) cane for beginners or advanced players.
