Product Description

Invocation

The guitar introduces the evocative mood of the work, followed four measures later by the oboe, which with its characteristic sound, embraces the guitar into a conversation and at the same time into an invocation.  The second theme, atmospheric, echoing reveals a waiting status. The work is full of fast arpeggios and technical difficulties for both instruments. Gradually increases in dramatic tension and complexity and concludes with the initial idea. The finale is simple, subtractive, allows a feeling of an unfulfilled expectation.

Duos for guitar and Oboe are rare and always a challenging task for the composer. That was the primary reason of mine when I started working on this work, to accomplish a match that is unique and wonderful at the same time. Most of my music since that time explores the uniqueness of instruments and their interaction.  Invocation was one of the first and its material used later by me in my First Guitar Concerto (Phygein Adynaton).

 Invocation was premiered at the TSAI Performance Center in Boston, MA and it was a prize winner at the Finalists of the 1994 ALEA Composition Competition
