Nox ruit…hic locus est (derivata)

Hesketh, K. (2022) Nox ruit…hic locus est (derivata). [Composition]


For solo oboe. Nox Ruit…Hic locus est is one of a collection of 200 solo pieces commissioned to celebrate the bicentenary of the Royal Academy of Music in 2022. Programme note: "A contribution to the Royal Academy’s bicentenary in 2022, Nox Ruit… Hic Locus est (Night falls… this is the place) takes material from my oboe and orchestra work Viae (Pathways), recasting and recontextualising various portions of the original narrative. Whilst not an overt showpiece for the instrument, the work nevertheless poses challenges of technique, pacing, and shaping." The composer wishes to thank oboist Chris Vettraino for his premiere performance and for various suggestions and assistance in the preparations of this work.
