4 Bohemian Sketches for Oboe (Flute, Clarinet, Sorano Saxophone) and Piano
score and parts oboe(flute, clarinet, soprano saxophone) and piano
The ´4 Bohemian Sketches´ were originally composedas 8 Bohemian duos for piano duet. They are a mixture of ´real´ and ´invented´ folk music. With these pieces, Husa follows examples like Schumann, Hindemith and Bartok who also wrote music for young amateurs and those making music at home. They are music for playing in the best sense and can be used very early in instrumental lessons.
Husa was born in Prague, studied with Arthur Honegger and Nadia Boulanger, among others, at the Paris Conservatoire and worked as a professor of music theory at the New York Cornell University in the USA for many years.
