I've had so much trouble and frustration recently attempting an orchestral piece that I gave up. There comes a point where it gets too much. Last time that happened I gave up composing altogether for several years.
So I turned to writing a solo to clear the slate so to speak. Trivial it may be but it seems to have worked leading to lauching into an octet in a more formal style. I chose bass oboe as I have samples for it - regrettably limited so they don't allow much scope - maybe that's a good thing.
Any comment good or bad would be appreciated and many thanks if you can give it an audition. Duration 2 minutes.
