Makoto Shinohara: Obsession (Oboe/Piano)

Books | Oboe, Piano Accompaniment

Publisher: Alphonse Leduc
Composer: Makoto Shinohara
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Japanese born Makoto Shinohara was born in 1931. He studied at the Tokyo University of Arts before moving to the Paris Conservatoire. His passion is for electronic music, but his catalogue is varied and includes the sublime Obsession for Oboe and Piano.

Composed in 1960, Shinohara had just completed his studies at the Paris Conservatoire under Olivier Messiaen and other experimental composers. Obsession exploits the Oboe and Piano through riveting uses of tonality, rhythm, dynamics, tempo, articulation and shared melody. For all advanced oboists seeking to include a challenging yet excitingly unique contemporary work in their repertoire, Shinohara's Obsession suitably fits the bill!

        What a fantastic piece, wish I'd discovered it sooner, can't wait to include it in a recital...It's a bit "way out" and might not appeal to everyone but at least it's a contemporary piece that makes musical sense unlike most of them!!
