Description

Earliest work for wind ensemble, composed during my student years.

Program Notes

This piece was most certainly inspired by an early obsession with the wind quintet instrumentation in a period where I was closely studying the chamber music of Darius Milhaud. Still not yet performed, it is a student work for standard wind quintet instrumentation, with a cover design by Bryan Durren, my roommate who went on to great artistic success.
