    Default Something this subtle!

    I'm trying to find anything that sounds similar to this particular part of Stravinsky's Orpheus:

    I mean the oboe part...
    I even tried other Stravinsky works and found nothing.

    If this reminds you of some other piece please say!

    Arnold Bax wrote some pieces featuring woodwinds and harps. Here's one, his "in memoriam" (with an English horn rather than oboe):



    Also, try the Elegaic Trio, for flute, viola, and harp:



    And also his Nonet for Winds, Strings, and Harp:



    Not exactly Stravinsky, but maybe at times in the same universe.

    Until I read your title I had never before realized that subtle and sublet were close anagrams.
