Jolliffe, Edmund: Aiming High for Oboe and Piano
Eight pieces for oboe and piano
Standard: Grades 3 to 5
A Tall Tale
Time for Bed
On the Beach
From the composer of My Family and Other Animals for clarinet, here is a new collection of engaging and beautifully imagined oboe pieces by Edmund Jolliffe. Each one is not only a picturesque or playful study, but also a reflection of the anthology’s title, addressing aspects of technique and interpretation through shapely melodies crafted around an aspiring phrase or phrases in the instrument’s upper register. For oboists of between grades three and five standard, these pieces offer eight unique opportunities for thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding playing.
