My goal in writing is to enhance the repertoire for double-reed instrumentalists and chamber groups. My primary focus has been the double-reed quartet: two oboes, English horn, and bassoon. The classical, romantic, and more modern string quartet literature is rich and varied, and the challenge in making it available for double-reed players is rewarding. I have also arranged for massed double-reed choirs.
