Ten Variations For Oboe, Piano and String Quartet (2011)

Length: Approx. 14 minutes


2

Performance notes:

GENERAL: 1. All the variations should be played in a row (attacca), with no longer breaks than indicated. 2. Boxed passages should be played in regardless of tempo and barlines, with no attempt to match the rest of the instruments.

STRINGS PIZZ.: - Pluck first note, gliss to the following note and pluck again. ( )

- Pluck first note, then gliss until reaching the second (without plucking again).

VIOLINS: In the boxed passages in Variation no. 1, for diamond noteheads apply "harmonic pressure" on strings, while sound is alternating between actual harmonics and nearly white noise.

VIOLA: 1. A standard guitar pick is needed in Variation no. 10. The violist might find that strumming chords with a pick is easier when holding the viola on his/her lap, like a guitar.
