Recurring Dreams

 

Recurring Dreams is the second movement of a three-movement piece originally scored for three oboes entitled The Mountain Suite.

It turns out that raising the pitch by a minor third makes it a fine piece for mixed woodwinds as well.

As with the other two movements, the melodic material is amply passed around the ensemble; the musical language is that of quartal harmony and some mixed meter
 

I have no live recording of this piece, so the mp3 is a FINALE extraction - the sound isn’t particularly satisfying but it certainly gives you a good idea of how the piece goes.

Recurring Dreams sells for $30.00 for the hard copy, $20.00 for the pdfs.
