Program Notes

This concerto finds its inspiration in the trobairitz, the noble-born women poet-composer-performers akin to the troubadours of the Medieval era. A chantar by Beatriz de Dia of the late 12th century is the only known work that survives with both music and poetry intact. Beatriz de Dia's strophic song weaves throughout this new work in many guises. Like the poem of the scorned lover, the piece builds and builds on the dark lyricism giving way to frustration, fury, and condemnation.

Trobairitz was written for Kristin Leitterman and the Arkansas State University Wind Ensemble.

Performance Notes

There is an optional alternate ending to the second movement to allow for the first and second movements to be excerpted in performance with the soloist options to be on English horn, oboe d'amore, and oboe or English horn and oboe d'amore. The third movement can stand alone as a work for solo oboe and ensemble.
