Oasis

Duration: Approx. 4:48

Instrumentation: Two Bb Clarinets

Program Notes:

An oasis is something serving as a refuge, relief, or pleasant change from what is usual, or difficult. It can also be a peaceful, flourishing place that makes a pleasant contrast to its surroundings.  Throughout the piece you will hear a calm, soothing melody, which is juxtaposed next to contrasting faster, busier, or more chaotic sections of music. 

Oasis was commissioned by the Aubarra Clarinet Duo, Jonathan Aubrey and Michael Rex Bacarra in 2014.
