Tweet for Two-2OB
Composer: Small, Haskell

for two oboes
by Haskell Small (b. 1948)- American composer
Tweet for Two was written in 1998 for the husband-and-wife oboe team, Dan Doesher and Jeanine Reinier. This colorful and entertaining duo began as a light-hearted "Suite for Two" and evolved into a sparkling, engaging rondo. Although it is written in Small's unique lyrical style, there are hints of Shostakovich, including a tune also quoted by the Russian master, "Tea for Two". Tweet for Two was a prize winner in the 1998 Britten-on-the-Bay Composer's Competition.
