Telemann Canonic Sonata No. 1, Vivace | Jessica Smithorn, CSO Principal Oboe

 

 

Principal Oboe Jessica Smithorn brings you this special performance as part of her recent social media takeover. From Jessica: "While my sister is a twin, I am not, but this video will have you seeing double! It's the first movement of Telemann's Canonic Sonata No. 1. Here, a canon is not a weapon that fires out cannonballs, it's a melody that can be repeated on top of itself, like Row, Row, Row Your Boat. The first voice and second voice are separated by just 6 beats - listen for how they echo and interact with each other!"
