Abstract: The majority of an oboist's repertoire consists of compositions from western European countries such as France, Italy, Germany, and the Netherlands. While this repertoire is substantial, there is a vast number of compositions from other European countries which have remained virtually unheard in the United States. Norway is one of these countries. The purpose of this study was to investigate Norwegian solo oboe literature. The goal of the study was to identify, examine, and catalog relatively unknown Norwegian oboe literature so that the existing body of international literature might be expanded. This study presents a complete examination of over 100 compositions for the oboe which have been written by Norwegian composers. This catalogue lists oboe literature alphabetically by composer under the following classifications: solo oboe, oboe with keyboard instrument, oboe with orchestra or band, and oboe with chamber ensemble. Each listing consists of the title, composer, analytical perspectives, composer's commentary if available, and author's commentary.
