Diabelli Project 139 - Piece for Solo Oboe

The Diabelli Project is about offering my weekly flash-composition sketches freely to all. Like Antonio Diabelli's theme, these sketches aren't great music. But perhaps (as in Diabelli's case) there's a Beethoven out there who can do great things with them.

This is the third flash composition sketch I've done for solo oboe. Looking back at the other two, I can see some similarities, but there are some major differences (see Nos. 74 and 65. Sometimes I wonder if sketches made for the same forces are bits of a larger work. In this case, I don't think so. It seems that this sketch is more of a development of the earlier ones. And that's one of the points of this exercise -- to get more comfortable creating.


As always, you can use any or all of the posted Diabelli Project sketches as you wish for free. Just be sure to share the results. I'm always curious to see what direction someone else can take this material.
