Night Windows: US Premiere - IDRS Conference

  • University of South Florida, Tampa, USA (map)

Nicholas Daniel gives the US premiere of the chamber orchestra version of Thea Musgrave’s Night Windows for Oboe and Strings at the International Double Reed Society Conference in Tampa, Florida.

Night Windows is the title of a painting by Edward Hopper of a scene in one such lighted window. However the scenes in this work – though reflecting something of all the loneliness in so many of the Hopper paintings – are all imaginary: highly charged emotional moments. Loneliness: Anger: Nostalgia: Despair: Frenzy. 

The oboe and piano version of Night Windows was commissioned by the International Double Reed Society and it is dedicated to Nicholas Daniel. The International Double Reed Society (IDRS) was established in December 1971 as a world-wide organization of double reed (oboe and bassoon family) players, instrument manufacturers, and enthusiasts. The society has over 2,700 members from around the world. Within the United States, all 50 states as well as the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico are represented.
