Cake Dance Suite (score & parts) - 2OB/EH
Composer: Aitken, Elizabeth
Publisher: Phylloscopus Publications (England)
for two oboes and English horn
by Elizabeth Aitken (b. 1949) - English composer
The Cake Dance Suite is a light-hearted set of four Miniatures. Each "slice" contains an original dance melody and then play about with the tunes from the country concerned- straight or adapted. For example, Eclair has a French carol, a whiff of the Marseillaise and hints of Frere Jacques shared among the players.
