Three Quartobtudes
for four oboes
by Graham Powning (b.1949) -Australian composer
I. Vivo
II. Threnody
III. Presto

Written in 1983. The title is a reminder of Graham Powning's enjoyment of cryptic crosswords, especially during long rehearsals at the Sydney Opera House! The music has adopted some features from Bartok, notably parallel seconds and jerky rhythms.
