Oboe and Piano
Winter Wheat is inspired by the beautiful season of fall. Molly and I both have a love for fall. It’s complexity as a season, along with the way we both experience it made it the perfect subject of this project. As we collaborated on the direction of the piece, I inquired about Molly’s unique experiences with synesthesia, and how that affects her ideas and opinions of the season. Because of this unique challenge each section contains a different focal point. Flow represents color, warmth, and the spices of fall. Hallowed Eve focuses on the dark, fun, mysterious side of this cold season. And winter wheat wraps up the piece with suggestions and renewal and rebirth.
