From May 13th through May 23rd, I will be on tour with the PEN Trio, giving concerts in the United Kingdom and in India. Orders will continue by the TrevCo-Varner Music Staff, but it may take a day or two longer to receive answers to emails and phone calls. Thank you for your patience! Eric Varner

Three Quartobtudes (Score & Parts)-4OB

Composer: Powning, Graham

Publisher: Phylloscopus Publications (England)

Edition: PP317


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.
