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.

I created this version for saxophone quartet for Jeff Heisler and the Assembly Quartet. The set includes both an Alto I and a Soprano part – they are musically identical, and you may choose to perform it in either instrumentation (SATB or AATB).
