- shadow of a difference / falling: Richard Drehoff Jr. & Andrew Nogal
Composer Richard Drehoff Jr. was paired with oboist Andrew Nogal of the Grossman Ensemble to write a new work for solo oboe entitled "shadow of a difference / falling."
From the Composer:
"shadow of a difference / falling" is a series of moments based around the idea of the proverbial bird beating its wings against its newfound cage in trepidation. Each impulse provides insight into its fragile disposition, venturing from moments of cautious curiosity, through forlorn wails and futile exertions, to a melancholy resignation of its confinement. The work exposes the bird's vulnerability by exploring blurred inflections of pitch, unsteady and ever-wavering sweeps across registers, and sharp juxtapositions between timid and rash gestures.
--Richard Drehoff Jr.
