Dusk (brass band)

Brass Band

This simple, chorale-like work captures the reflective calm of dusk, paradoxically illuminated by the fiery hues of sunset. I’m always struck by the dual nature of this experience, as if witnessing an event of epic proportions silently occurring in slow motion. Dusk is intended as a short, passionate evocation of this moment of dramatic stillness.

This version for brass band arranged by Patrick Sheridan, and premiered by the Salt River Brass Band.
