Catching Up

Brass Quintet (12’ 5”)

 

A fast, rhythmic first movement gives way to a gentle waltz in the second, leading up to a furious tidal wave in the final movement.

Iago

Alto Flute (3’ 45”)

 

A short work, with some extended techniques.  This work was written in honor of the composer’s late brother.  (This work may also be performed on C Flute or Bass Flute)

Listen

Open Space

Trombone (3’ 55”)

 

Portraying a struggle to contain a space too wide for words, this work challenges the performer to present several distinct and separate voices, all intermingling.  The rushing opening fanfare quickly gives way to a flowing line.  That smooth landscape is soon marred, however, until the open space disappears completely once more.

Paroxysm

Flute Quartet (3’ 45”)

 

Fast and furious, this is not your standard flute quartet.

Porch Music

Flute Choir (Piccolo, C Flute, Alto & Bass)  (8’ 45”)

 

Sitting on a porch swing high in the Appalachia mountains, the evening sounds ebb and flow over the listener.

Woodwind Waltz

Wind Quintet (4’ 50”)

 

Exactly as the title suggests, a waltz from beginning to end.  A minor beginning soon moves to a fugal section, with an almost chorale-like ending.
