  • Equinox – Large Brass Ensemble

    Equal day, equal night, represented by double brass quintet, conical vs. cylindrical. Seating should be in an inverted V, with tuba on the outside left. Going up the left side, next to tuba is horn 3, then horn 2, horn 1 and cornet at the top of the inverted V. Coming down the right side is trumpet 1 at the top, trumpet 2, trombone 1, trombone 2 and bass trombone, facing tuba.

    Brilliantly crafted to maximize the different timbres, the wide ranges and varying instrumental combinations, this is an impressive achievement accomplished with great skill and a welcome addition to the brass repertoire.

  • Feels Like Far – Mixed Quintet

    Sometimes the intimacy and intensity of a shared experience is best expressed by music. The character of each of these five instruments is retained in this unique combination, yet they blend into a new and distinct sound with timbres that are seemingly remote from the traditional sounds associated with them. This music transcends the composer’s imagination and you, both the performer and the audience, have the opportunity to hear your own personal journey that feels like far.

    The sample score and sample mp3 include all three movements.

    Total duration: ca. 11:15

  • Forbidden – Horn and Piano

    Commissioned by Grammy-award winning horn player Andrew Pelletier, this very fast-paced and highly energetic piece draws its inspiration from the final moments of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s fly in his poem: The Death of the Fly (1810).

    “WITH eagerness he drinks the treach'rous potion,

    Nor stops to rest, by the first taste misled;
    Sweet is the draught, but soon all power of motion

    He finds has from his tender members fled;
    No longer has he strength to plume his wing,
    No longer strength to raise his head, poor thing!
    E'en in enjoyment's hour his life he loses,
    His little foot to bear his weight refuses;
    So on he sips, and ere his draught is o'er,
    Death veils his thousand eyes for evermore.”

    Premiered in 2006 on Andrew Pelletier’s recital entitled American Journey at Bowling Green State University, this piece begins as the fly takes his first sip of the forbidden potion. The simultaneous euphoria and terror is explored as the fly realizes his fate. With one final hurrah, he finishes his drink and “death veils his thousand eyes for evermore.”
