Program Notes

Passing Through (2011) originated as a duet for oboe (or clarinet) and bassoon (or bass clarinet) written in three movements. The composer provides the following notes:

My arrangement of Passing Through is part of an ongoing project of mine to convert some of my chamber music duos to wind ensemble instrumentations -- thereby the sparse chamber music moments, which reflect the original versions.

The title, Passing Through, relates to the quick, random thoughts that I had while trying to name the individual movements. The thoughts seemed to spring out of nowhere and went as quickly as they came, almost without consequence. Bounce refers to the bass line in 7/8 at the beginning of the first movement. Evening Song resides within a tranquil, peaceful atmosphere. The Flea comments on the jumpiness and, at times, unpredictability of the third movement.
