Dusk (saxophone ensemble)

ChamberSaxophone Ensemble

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.

Arranged for Saxophone Ensemble from the original band version by Jose Oliver Riojas.

Note: I have made additional changes to José’s arrangement, so if you originally got a copy directly from him, please recycle that and get an updated copy from this site.
