Double Cadenza

Duration: 8 Minutes, 30 Seconds

Double Cadenza parodies the improvisatory, virtuosic nature of a cadenza masked in its own independent structure. The piece highlights the timbres and techniques unique to the oboe and tenor saxophone as individuals while combining the two distinctly different instruments as a single, unified color. Double Cadenza is intended to be humorously capricious in its use of form and harmony as well as in the manner in which the two instruments interact.

Double Cadenza was commissioned by Paul and Leah Forsyth,The Three Reeds Duo.
