Description

Program Note:

Written for oboist Jeralee Johnson, Daydreams and Postlude was inspired by Britten’s classic Six Metamorphoses After Ovid as well as by pastoral images such as Franz von Lenbach’s painting “Hirtenknabe.” In four movements, the piece consists of three fantasies — a gnarly tocatta, a rustic dance, and a plaintive chant — and a cantankerous finale. It is, as Dickens would put it, “Woolgathering Killjoyed.”
