Program Notes

Of Infinity for two oboes and wind ensemble was commissioned in 2021 by Frank Tracz and the Kansas State University Wind Ensemble. It was premiered in 2022 by oboe soloists Kelley Tracz and Alyssa Morris, the Kansas State University Wind Ensemble, and Frank Tracz, conductor and director.

Each movement of the concerto centers one of the following infinite objects or ideas:

In the movement Mirrors, two oboes trade a small motive that shifts, grows, and morphs throughout the movement until the final climactic cadenza between the two oboes.

The movement Eternities is based on the hymn If You Could Hie to Kolob. The hymn is a reflection on eternal life. The following lines come from the fifth verse of the hymn: “There is no end to glory; there is no end to love; There is no end to being; there is no death above.”

The concerto concludes with Circles, another game of chase between two oboes. A circular, spinning motive is traded between the two soloists, one at a time and in synchronization, until all of the winds join in with the spinning motion until the raucous conclusion.

Many thanks to Dr. Tracz and the KSU Wind Ensemble for the opportunity to write this work for them, and to collaborate with this truly fantastic ensemble.
