Places We Are From, a new work by Jenni Brandon, explores the idea of identity and where we come from both geographically, physically, and spiritually. This unique exploration is reflected in the make-up of the three (3) different instrumentation options for this work, using these combinations to tell stories of joy, hope, frustration, and perseverance. The colors and combinations in each version reflect a vision of discovering who we are in unprecedented times and finding happiness in the journey.
This work will be available in three versions:
Oboe, Bassoon, Piano
Oboe, Saxophone, Piano
Saxophone, Bassoon, Piano
Commissioned by the Post-Haste Reed Duo (Sean Fredenburg– saxophone and Javier Rodriguez, bassoon) and the Proud Duo (Dora Proud – oboe, Joseph Proud – saxophone). “Places We Are From” receives its first world premiere during the International Double Reed Society Conference 2nd Virtual Symposium. The IDRS performance of “Places We are From” is on July 29, 2021 at 10:00 AM PDT. This work is the recipient of the IDRS “50 for 50” commissioning grant in celebration of the organization’s 50th anniversary.
