This may be one of my most performed works. Written in 2003 as a student composition, it has garnered much admiration from players and listeners alike. Rarely is the Baritone Saxophone shown in a lyrical concert setting, but here is shines as the solo voice it truly is. This work is roughly five minutes in length and makes for a great recital piece. The strings parts may be done with only a quintet of players ( or a full string section.
