“Places We Are From” for oboe, bassoon, and piano is a new work by Jenni Brandon. It 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 3 different instrumentations 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.
Places We Are From received its first world premiere during the International Double Reed Society Conference 2nd Virtual Symposium – July 26-31, 2021. This work is the recipient of the IDRS “50 for 50” commissioning grant in celebration of the organization’s 50th anniversary.
