In case you aren’t familiar with him, Kerry Lewis is a composer in our area and he’s written some wonderful pieces for oboe and piano. Here are some samples with the fantastic Michael Adduci on oboe. Both works are available through Trevco.

Suite: 1. At Play 2. At Rest 3. Intermezzo 4. Rondo

Here’s the second movement in its complete form (but including a bit of noise, as it’s a live recording). It’s lovely and works quite well on its own!
At Rest from Oboe Suite
