Composer: Wilson, Dana
Publisher: Dana Wilson
for oboe and band
by Dana Richard Wilson (b. 1946)- American composer, jazz pianist, and teacher
Calling, Ever Calling, concerto for oboe and wind orchestra, is about calling; to awaken te spirits, to one's love, to dance so that we may forget...At various times, the soloist calls to the audience or different members of the ensemble, and ensemble members call to each other. Sometimes one performer dominates the conversation, sometimes, a graceful dialogue emerges, sometimes, pleas go unanswered.
Commissioned by the Mid-American Band Directors Association, and given its first performance at the 50th Anniversary Convention of the College Band Directors National Association in Kansas Cit, with Michael Henoch playing the oboe.
