#NewTuneThursday: Intrepid (a Fantasy for Oboe/English Horn Soloist and Chamber Ensemble)

Sarah Wallin Huff

Welcome to #NewTuneThursday!

Evoking the driving forces of metamorphosis and migration, INTREPID is a cinematic Fantasy for soloist on oboe and english horn, with small chamber orchestra accompaniment. It is rich in color and texture, persistently forward-moving on its sweeping journey.

Completed in 2015, this work consists of a rather unusual ensemble, as it was written for a very specific group in mind. But, in fact, I love how this unique texture plays into all the richness of color and harmony as well as transparency. This is definitely one of my favorite works; I love the melody and harmonies… someday I hope to re-record it with an expert group. 🙂

For now, enjoy the debut recording below:

“Intrepid” can be performed by an intermediate to advanced group. Get the sheet music here! And stay tuned for our new work of next week…
