Sonatina (1939)
for oboe and piano
by Boris Vladimirovich Asaf'ev (1884-1949) - Russian composer and writer
I. Allegro moderato
II. Scherzo
III. Andante moderato
IV. Finale (Rondo)
This is part of the Russian Oboe Music editions, edited by Marc Fink. This work is conventional form, including very a compelling folk song settingĀ  in the slow movement. The Russian flavor pervades the entire work and there is genuine charm, wit, and humor throughout. A challenging and fun four movement work in the style of Shostakovich. Tuneful but with a certain edge!
