Tango In D
Composer: Jeffery Wilson
Catalogue no: CM065 | ISMN M-57034-065-1
Oboe (or soprano sax) and Piano
Written primarily for oboe, this short work is one of the set pieces for the Grade 5 Guildhall exam syllabus for 2002-2006. It has a piano accompaniment and is also supplied with a part for soprano saxophone.
It has a lively feel with oboe and piano working in equal partnership - the left hand of the accompaniment ranges over the 10th so often associated with this style and the oboe is given plenty of opportunity for expressive ornamentation. Plenty of material to make this worth looking closely at.
Sheet Music Magazine (Summer 2001)
Tango in D has a good lilt with a singable melodic line and interesting accompaniment that is not too difficult.
Association of Woodwind Teachers
Tango in D is a great little piece for Oboe.
Music Teacher Magazine
Solo works for the soprano are of course not as plentiful as for the alto instrument; Tango is a short essay in the medium. The chosen key leads to interesting excursions, and overall the piece is a good rhythmic and tonal study.
This is included on the following exam syllabuses:
