FIERCE TEARS I and FIERCE TEARS II for oboe and piano
Oxford Contemporary Repertoire Series
Both of these works for oboe and piano explore the emotions of grief and anger following loss or bereavement. Fierce Tears I and Fierce Tears II both use a melodic line taken from Berkeleys Oboe Concerto, but it is developed in different ways in each work.
