  • Sounds very improvisational. I understand that a soliloquy is for one instrument, but somehow I think of this form as being more expressive and melodic. This was fairly atonal - not a criticism; I was just surprised to hear a piece like this under the heading "Soliloquy."

    By the way, I also listened to your Debussy arrangement. Interesting, but the oboe sounded more like an organ. Yet it was very effective. If you can post a version with a more convincing oboe, i'd love to compare the two.

  • They are Shakespearean type soliloquies. A character wrestling with circumstances.
    The Debussy was originally written for harmonica and strings, but I don't have a decent harmonica sound file to use, so I arranged it for oboe and strings.
    The oboe was either Sibelius 6 oboe or Vienna Symphonic Library ( can't remember which one I used).
  • Garritan Personal Orchestra has a fabulous oboe. At 150.00 for the entire library, it's a steal. The clarinets are also very good. but if you are using a notation system, I'm not sure you can use it.

    That's $150 more than I can (now) afford, either way.
