An Evening in Georgia, op. 71 for flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, and piano
by Mikhail Ippolitov-Ivanov (1859-1935)
This short piece for winds and piano reflects on his love for Georgia (the country in the Caucuses, not the State) and is typical of his style of writing, which is colorful, tuneful, and melodic with subtle harmonic contrasts. An alternate second oboe part is provided in lieu of the original flute part.
