Editorial Reviews

The Oboe Mystic
Music by New Classical Music Composer, James Nathaniel Holland

With ability to cut through an orchestra like a trumpet or evoke great sensitivity and emotion, the Instrument of the oboe has not received its deserved place in the soloist’s limelight. In these three contemporary works of mine I have tried to show the marvelous and varied tonal colors the oboe can bring to a piece. Here the oboe is the mystic and in control, manifesting comedy, sadness, or fantasy.

At the Gates of Dawn, Tone Poem for Orchestra with Oboe featured as "Pan"

Concerto for Oboe in Three Movements: Cinderella, Russian Fairytale, Gnomes

An Italian Set for Trio (Oboe, Bassoon, and Piano) in Four Movements: Working Girls, Pompeii, Time Death and Judgment, and Commedia dell'Arte.

CD produced with sampling technology.

About the composer: James Nathaniel Holland is an American classical music composer of operas, symphonies, ballets, songs, and other musical concertworks that incorporate a unique, eclectic, blend of romantic, classical, world and jazz styles.

Born and raised in Indiana, he studied music at DePauw University, Vienna Austria, Interlochen National Music Camp and Indiana University (Bloomington, IN). At these schools many of his early pieces were premiered and performed, with one work being selected for main-stage production in the season.

Moving to Los Angeles and then settling in New York, he performed professionally sometimes as a singer, sometimes as a pianist, sometimes as choral conductor. He composed incidental music for the stage. In 2002 he founded a composers collective where they showcased their work. He was one of the first composers to participate in the American Music Center's initial on-line library. The New Jersey Concert Opera and the Gay Men's Chorus of New Jersey also featured his comic operas and art songs.

From 2005 he moved to Costa Rica where he organized concerts with visiting guest artists to present his chamber music to the public. Presently he lives in a castle in the central mountains of Costa Rica.
