The Dabbling Duck for English Horn and Cello

The Dabbling Duck for English Horn and Cello

$18.00

THE DABBLING DUCK (c. 7.5′)was commissioned by Roger Wiesmeyer, English hornist with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra. It was written in April of 2020 during the coronavirus pandemic. A rhapsody or whimsical piece was initially discussed, but a week later, what burst out was a piece of rollicking fun. When Markovich approached Wiesmeyer with the change, his response was: “The world could use that right about now!”

The world premiere was April 13, 2021 on the Arkansas Symphony River Rhapsodies Series V.

“I have two things on my stand–The Dabbling Duck and Sibelius.” Roger Wiesmeyer (former EH, Nashville Symphony)

“Judith Markovich is a great composer. I didn’t feel like I was listening to a duet, but a full chamber ensemble, if you know what I mean.” Lorraine Kitts (ASO oboe)

“I SO enjoyed hearing Beth and Jacob play your music. I loved the contrast between the movements and the way the instruments blended together. A great combo, and the music was very charming :)” Geoffrey Robson, Artistic Director of ASO
