Ponderings for oboe and piano

by Lon W Chaffin

I. Solitude- Reflection and Balance
II. Mystery- Contrast and Tension
III. Illumination- Depth and Focus
IV. Dialogue- Color and Texture

This set portrays a personal transformation, from solitude and questioning to discovery and interactions. It was inspired by paintings created by a friend and Texas artist, Cathie Tyler, as well as from the writings of Henry David Thoreau in his book, Walden.

The title of each movement depicts a phase of the journey- Solitude, Mystery, Illumination, and Dialogue. The subtitles address artistic aspects of each painting as well as allude to personal transformation.
