Abstract:Excerpted text from Ovid's Metamorphoses and the interpretations of Ovid scholars are used to analyze Benjamin Britten's Six Metamorphoses After Ovid, op. 49. Henri Tomasi's representation of four women from Peru, Nigeria, Cambodia, and Scotland in Evocations is examined in relation to musical traditions of each country. The six movements of Tina Nicholson's Moments from Women, representing personalities of various women, are examined with assistance from an interview with the composer. Excerpted text from Homer's The Odyssey and Helmut Schmidinger's compositional ideas support this analysis of Vier gefiederte Worte des Odysseus. An annotated select bibliography of other programmatic works for solo oboe is provided in an appendix.
