The Wildflower Trio for Oboe, Bassoon & Piano in Georgia
June 26, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am
The Wildflower Trio for oboe, bassoon and piano, with Scott Pool-bassoon. The Wildflower Trio, for oboe, bassoon, and piano, was commissioned in 2004 by the College of Fine Arts of the University of Texas at Austin to honor and celebrate the life and environmental work of Lady Bird Johnson. The inspiration for the piece came from a poetry book written by one of Mrs. Johnson’s friends, Bette Woolsey Castro. Her book, The Wildflower, was inspired by the opening of Lady Bird’s Wildflower Research Center in Austin, Texas, and contains a collection of poems about wildflowers and nature. Performed at the International Double Reed Society Conference at Columbus State University, Georgia.
