Scenes from the Cape Oboe Solo Collection
Scenes from the Cape is dedicated to my brother Jerry Nelson, who passed away in August, 2012. Jerry was a puppeteer with the Muppets, a singer, songwriter, philosopher and ninja wannabe. His talent was immense as was his love for many varied musical genres. My brother also took to Cape Cod in Massachusetts like a boomerang fish takes to Lew Zealand. I have tried to capture the feelings and images of the Cape in these solos.
Scenes from the Cape was also born out of a desire to create a quality source of solo literature for the developing musician. I hope that this book will prove to be a standard resource for private instructors and band directors alike.
This is a collection of 11 solos for Oboe and Piano. Each solo comes with the flute and piano parts, a brief description of the solo, and an MP3 accompaniment file.
Audio recordings of the trumpet versions of the solos in this collection can be heard on the MRNS Music YouTube Channel.
Individual solos are also available as a digital download.
