Dr. Hartley composed Reeds at Play in March 1998, setting it for the unusual combination of three oboes and English Hom. The work is written as one continuous movement with three sections distinguished by tempo, meter, and rhythmic activity. At my request Dr. Hartley has authorized an alternate bassoon part as a substitute for the English Hom-not that the higher instrument is all that rare, but merely because I want to be able to play the piece, and I imagine many of my tenor-clef colleagues will as well.
Reeds at Play is dedicated to Dr. Sarah Hamilton, Professor of Oboe at the State University of New York at Fredonia.
