Concerto for Oboe d'Amore and String Orchestra

  1. Grazioso
  2. Andante amabile
  3. Allegro animato

This is one of a very few concertos written for oboe d'amore, a very beautiful but long neglected instrument. The work is in three movements: Grazioso, Andante amabile, and Allegro animato. It is 18 minutes in length.

The Port Angeles (Washington) Orchestra with Jackie LaRue soloist performed the premiere, and they subsequently took the work on their tour of Southeast Asia.

The composition was inspired by Jennifer Paull, an oboist in Switzerland who founded a publishing company, Amoris International, with the intent of reviving the oboe d'amore. She has encouraged many composers to write for the instrument.
