Product Description

Thea Musgrave: Niobe : Music Sales America Series : Published by Music Sales America : # NOV36003501
Thea Musgrave: Niobe

In Greek mythology Niobe was the daughter of Tantalus and wife of Amphion; King of Thebes. She unwisely boasted to Leto about her many sons and daughters. Leto; who only had two children; Apollo and Artemis; was angered. As punishment Apollo slew Niobe's sons and Artemis her daugters. Out of pity for Niobe's inconsolable grief; the Gods changed her into a rock; in which form she continued to weep. In this work for solo Oboe and tape; the solo Oboe takes the part of Niobe bitterly lamenting her murdered children. The tape; with the distant high voices and the slow tolling bells (and later gong); is intended to provide an evocative and descriptive accompaniment. Niobe was commissioned by the Park Lane Group. The first performance took place at the Park Lane Concerts in January 1988.
