In one movement, the "Concerto for Oboe and Orchestra" is divided into five sections and a cadenza. It proposes to question the classical predominance of the solo instrument over the orchestra. A thoughtful distribution and diversification of roles performed by the soloist and the orchestra offers, as an alternative, a balanced interplay between these two protagonists.
Sections A and B supply material used in the other sections. Their main parameters are the predominance of some pitch intervals and the simultaneous use of different rhythmic organizations forming distinct textures. Section C stands quite freely from sections A and B for its own characteristics: the predominant use of aleatoric and semialeatoric rhythms, the exploration of timbres, and the predominance of the oboe over the other instruments.
