Asyla Oboe Quartet: Call
Deadline / unspecified
Click here for info

I just came upon this posting from January, and I offer it cautiously given the lapsed time. The Asyla Oboe Quartet has issued a call for scores, with an interest in works between 5-15 minutes for any instrumental combination from their group. Their standard line up is oboe, oboe d’amore, cor Anglais (English horn) and bass oboe, however each player has access to an oboe and cor Anglais. They also seem open to collaboration with composers in developing new works. They have received a large number of submissions thus far, and have produced a series of videos demonstrating their instrumentation. Worth your time if their collaborative model and sound appeal to you.
