I just purchased (finally) “Four Figment Fragments” by Nick Sibicky. I had seen (and heard) the work on YouTube quite some time ago, and one of the oboists who played, Jennifer Bernard, then sent me the information about how to contact Nick. I had neglected to contact him until now. Well … the duo has been ordered and I’m looking forward to playing it. (It might be a good piece for one of my student’s UCSC recital, in fact.) Here … have another listen:
