Nearly all of my music is written with someone in mind. In this instance, I wrote my Oboe Quintet for Dr Youn Joo Lee, Associate Principal Oboe of the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra, with her beautiful sound and musical sensibilities as my inspiration. The Oboe Quintet has unabashed American moments - a brief snatch of jazz, a blue note here and there. But one can also hear modal harmonies as well as the verdant, outdoors whiff of folk music which reflects my lifelong affection for British music, in particular, that of Ralph Vaughan Williams, Britten, and Delius. There is also a passing moment where the solo oboe briefly plays a shepherdess playing her pipe on an unimaginably green hillside on the perfect summer day.
