9780810850316: Oboe Unbound: Contemporary Techniques (The New Instrumentation Series)

Oboists, forever obsessing over reeds and the demands of their finicky instrument, have lagged somewhat behind their more adventurous colleagues. This resource seeks to open up the tradition-bound assumptions of that instrument's capabilities.

Not only does it include descriptions of the instrument's standard technique (such as range, reeds, and use of vibrato); but it provides a discussion of the many techniques that have recently been utilized (such as multiphonics, microtones, altered timbres, extended range, and many others) along with numerous musical examples and hundreds of fingerings. The fingering charts are extremely reliable, having been tested by a range of oboists with varying reed styles and instruments. A concluding chapter provides basic information about the use of electronics for amplification, recording, and sound enhancement. The book's appendices include a substantial bibliography of music and literature, a discography including jazz, non-western, and art music recordings, and a CD with examples of all the contemporary sounds as well as two previously unreleased compositions. With its wide range of detailed information, is a thorough resource for oboists and composers, from beginners to professionals.

About the Author:

Libby Van Cleve is Adjunct Oboe Professor at Wesleyan University and Connecticut College and is Associate Director of Oral History, American Music at Yale University.

Review:

...the tone of the book is that of someone who really understands the inherent difficulties of this music, yet has such a great appreciation and understanding of the topic the reader can't help but be excited by it. It is not condescending, and is careful not to assume any prior knowledge that would make a novice reader insecure, yet maintains a broad enough scope to appeal to a professional who performs this music regularly....Ms. Van Cleve is at once the oboist's champion and protector....What this book has going for it the most is its author: Ms. Van Cleve has tried all of these techniques and fingerings hundreds of times, she knows what works, and she has worked with a myriad of composers on techniques and contemporary notation. In the course of writing this book, she solicited a number of oboists to try out her fingerings and techniques on a wide variety of oboes and reed styles. Her incredible knowledge and experience with a vast array of techniques and repertoire is inspiring. If Oboe Unbound is not yet a part of your library, it soon should be. (The Double Reed)

Van Cleve begins with the oboe's standard technique, then discusses contemporary sound production such as multiphonics, microtones, altered timbres, extended range, and more. The book includes numerous music examples as well as fingering charts tested by a range of oboists with varying reed styles and instruments. Appendixes include bibliographies and discographies, and the CD provides recorded examples of all the contemporary sounds as well as two previously unreleased compositions. (Teaching Music)

This amazing guide to contemporary oboe techniques is what one would expect from Libby Van Cleve, a superlative artist-oboist, who is passionately musical, deeply intelligent and eminently practical. The Oboe Unbound is inspiring, comprehensive and easy to learn from, with easy-to-read fingering charts. I recommend it highly. (Allan Vogel, principal oboist, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra)
