Program Notes

Martha, Op. 23 is drawn from the themes of the opera of the same name by Friedrich von Flotow (1812-1883), which was written and premiered in 1847. The Fantasy, as a set of variations on operatic melodies, allows the oboist to prove its ability to give life to melodic phrases while dazzling with two-voiced textures, double tonguing, and circular breathing.

The work was transcribed by Kevin Kastens for Mark Weiger, Professor of Music at The University of Iowa, where he teaches oboe and coaches chamber music. Kastens is aAssociate director of bands at The University of Iowa.
