De La Madera
for oboe and marimba
by Howard J. Buss (b. 1951)- American composer
De La Madera for oboe and marimba was composed during the early months of 2006. The Spanish title means "From the Wood" and refers not only to the material producing the tones, but also the alluring enchantment of the forest. This beautiful and compelling duo mixes Buss' unique style of soaring lyricism and exciting contrasts with spicy, Zesty Latin rhythms. The result is sure to please both the audience and performers!
Performed at the 2011 IDRS Conference in Tempe.
