Fragments for wind octet was composed beginning in 1992 and worked on sporadically until 2010. It uses a compositional technique as if themes placed on a bulletin board are moved around for each instrument. The motives recall the traditional figures played when harmonies – ensembles of pairs of woodwinds and horns - were in vogue: leaping clarinet arpeggios, bouncy bassoon bass lines, sprightly rhythms and lyrical oboe melodies. The horns, however, play a corrupted version of ‘horn fifths’ throughout without sharing it.
Triobapa for oboe, bassoon and piano (10'00).
Composed in 2000, premiered by Arbitrio at the International Double Reed Society meeting in Buenos Aires in August, 2000. The outer movements are spirited. The middle one has extended solos for the woodwinds. Traditional technique and ranges. Keyboard score and parts for oboe and bassoon.
1. Three movements: Allegro spiritoso, Moderato, Allegro spiritoso (4'45)
2. Autumn Thoughts, Andante, poco adagio (3'00)
