Alyssa Morris: "Four Personalities" for oboe & piano
for oboe and piano
by Alyssa Morris (b. 1984)
This title is a four-movement work based on the Hartman personality test.
- Yellow: Yellow is fun-loving. The joy that comes from doing something just for the sake of doing it is what motivates and drives yellow.
- White; White is peacekeeper. White is kind, adaptable, and a good listener. Though motivated by peace, white struggles with indecisiveness.
- Blue: Blue brings great gifts of service, loyalty, sincerity, and thoughtfulness. Intimacy, creating relationships, and having purpose is what motivates and drives blue.
- Red: Motivated by power, red is aggressive and assertive. Red is visionary confident, and proactive.
Highly creative, tuneful, and inventive writing. The first movement alone, written in a jazzy style, will win you over! A wonderful new addition to the oboe repertoire of the 21st century.
