Queens Etudes (2017)

Written for Immer Neu, a duo for oboe and harp (Karisa Antonio, oboe; Claire Happel-Ashe, harp) this work explores certain technical features of each instrument.  The aim is not virtuosity per se, but rather a musical journey with the technical features as a mere starting point.  The work contains five movements.  

This piece was made possible through a New Works Grant from the Queens Council on the Arts.

Karisa Antonio, oboe

Claire Happel-Ashe, harp
