Following the acclaim and popularity of the first concerto that Eric Ewazen wrote for oboist Linda Strommen, in 2010 Ewazen composed a second concerto for her, this time with wind ensemble accompaniment. The programmatic title Hold Fast Your Dreams is an appreciation for Linda Strommen’s mother whose exemplary resolve to hold fast her dreams inspired Ewazen to generate the concerto’s three-movement journey. For advanced performers. Dur.: 19'
