This is a bit strange. I lead a weekly music dept. performance class and decided at the end of Monday's class to have two of the performers return to the stage and play their pieces simultaneously. This experiment had grown out of an interest I'd developed in creating musical mash-ups by layering different recordings. After deciding it would be interesting to try this kind of thing live, I chose these two works (Benjamin Britten's "Niobe" for solo oboe and Mitchell Peters' "Yellow After the Rain" for marimba) that had already been performed, just because it seemed they'd match each other well. The results were rather astonishing in terms of how well they match up and complement each other.
These are two performances of the pieces that I have blatantly stolen from YouTube. I'll remove them if either of the original performers here objects.
Here are the original performances, which have not been altered at all in this video:
