Fanfare & Soliloquy is an outstanding choice for a recital or contest piece for an intermediate-level student of the Oboe. The rousing Fanfare appears both at the beginning and end of the work, surrounding the lovely Soliloquy. While quite dramatic and featuring a few sections of technical challenge for the soloist, the work is also quite short and accessible - and a clear audience-pleaser!

A skilled accompanist would be most helpful given the mixed meters and frequent tempo changes; however, the work would also be a manageable challenge for a young pianist working on his or her accompanying skills!

Overall, the piece helps to fill an important void for the Oboe repertoire - that of new, original works for the instrument which are accessible for musician and audience alike.
