NICKEL - Concerto for Oboe

Spent the day yesterday listening to and taking notes from a recording I made a few weeks ago with Ros Morley, a fellow Canadian and a member of Parthenia, a consort of viols based in New York City for whom I'm writing my next composition. Our meeting was an afternoon of pure delight; Ros and another gamba player, Terry Hare (who is commissioning the piece) performed music by Thomas Morley and we explored extended techniques on the instruments (including striking the tailpiece of a G violone with a soft mallet. Best. Sound. Ever.).
