Talisker (Score & Parts)-2OB/EH

Composer: Aitken, Elizabeth

Publisher: Phylloscopus Publications (England)

Edition: PP551


Where Sea Meets Skye
for two oboes and English horn
by Elizabeth Aitken (b. 1949)- English composer


A four minute evocation of the west coast of Skye: A figure appears on Talisker Beach and gazes around. Instinctively he hears the melody of the sea. For a few moments he watches the waves- slow and deliberate ones, the little pushy ones, and a giant that rumbles up the sand, threatening his toes. Then comes a wave which seems to dribble on for ever, at which point it starts raining. 

Making his way slowly off the beach he takes a last look round and turns his back on Talisker- which in repsonse calls after him, spelling out its name in Morse code.
