The Oboe Studio of West Virginia University’s College of Creative Arts is hosting a recital on Saturday, March 3, at 5 p.m. in the Bloch Learning and Performance Hall of the Creative Arts Center.

This event is free and open to the public.

The recital will feature “Variations on a Theme of Mozart,” for two oboes and English horn, by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827); “Variations on Waltzing Matilda,” for two oboes and English horn, by Graham Powning (b. 1949); “Concerto in B Flat,” for three oboes and continuo, by Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767); “Shepherds of Provence,” for oboe and English horn, by Eugène Bozza (1905-1991); and “Tres Palos Negros” (Three Black Sticks) by Bert Ligon. The final work is a tango for two oboes, English horn and a bag of tube cane.

The Oboe Studio will be joined by the WVU Bassoon Studio for the Prayer Prelude from “Hansel and Gretel” by Engelbert Humperdinck (1854-1921) and “Soul Bossa Nova” by Quincy Jones (b. 1933).

There will also be a surprise encore from a well-known movie. According to oboe professor Cynthia Anderson, it is a piece that was surely composed with oboes and bassoons in mind and it is “out of this world.”
