Where You End and I Begin - OB/PN
Composer: Maggio, Robert
Where You End and I Begin
for oboe and piano
by Robert Maggio (b. 1964) - American composer
where you end and i begin is a five-movement work which consists of a single continuous thread woven throughout. The opening theme is a Sicilian lullaby, from which all of the musical ideas in the piece are offshoots. In relationships between friends and family, spouses and children, clear boundaries often give us a sense of order and strength through mutual understanding. In this piece, boundaries are intentionally crossed, both in style and substance, to explore musical connections.
