Metamorphoses after Britten by philipvenables

'Metamorphoses after Britten arejust that: four miniatures, each inspired by one of Benjamin Britten’s Six Metamorphoses after Ovid for solo oboe. Each movement, over its short course, transforms gradually from one thing to another, ending, with the exception ofFountains, in a short, cathartic coda. Some of the movements also take specific musical elements from Britten’s pieces.

I very much viewed these pieces as musical Haiku, and in that sense I hope they embody a sense ofpeace, brevity and simplicity.

The oboe version of Metamorphoses after Britten is dedicated to Melinda Maxwell.

The saxophone version of Metamorphoses after Britten, with an additional movement, is dedicated to Vickiand Andrew Vaughan'
