Firecracker (Score & Solo Oboe Part)-OB/CHAMBER ENSEMBLE

Firecracker (1991)
for solo oboe and chamber ensemble: flute/piccolo, bass clarinet, percussion, piano, violin, and cello
by Michael Daugherty (b. 1954)- American composer

Firecracker is a virtuosic piece spun off from a motive inspired by the diabolically difficult etudes of Antonio Pasculli (1842-1924), perhaps the greatest virtuoso of his day. The musical fireworks are briefly interrupted by a playful tango interlude. 

Duration - ca. 13:00
