Dusk, arranged for Bassoon and Piano
This arrangement was created in 2021 to give solo instrumentalists access to the music outside of full concert band or symphony orchestra performances. No piano? Use this video, conducted by Verena Mösenbichler-Bryant (with background sunset photos and video I created over the past several years).

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.
