Rebecca Oswald, Composer and Solo Pianist


I'm an award winning composer and pianist.

My catalogue includes many concert works, large and small, mostly on commission. I've composed instrumental music for solo piano and other solo instruments, various chamber ensembles, string and full orchestra, and a clarinet concerto. I've also written music for solo voices and for choral ensembles — sacred or secular, in numerous languages, accompanied and not, as well as a large concert work for chorus and orchestra and a two-hour fully orchestrated opera with chorus and seven soloists.

I'm always interested in new commission ideas. Do you have an idea and a budget? Please (325) 305-9986 and let's discuss your project!
