In honor of the 200th Birthday of Adolphe Sax (and Throwback Thursday), here is an excerpt of my first work with saxophone.
Cyclic Movements was composed in 1995 at the request of Patrick Meighan while I was a graduate student at Florida State University. This recording of the second movement is from the premiere performance, which occurred 19 years ago this month.
It’s a far cry from what I am composing these days, but it is fun nevertheless!
Happy Birthday, Mr. Sax! Thank you for the beautiful noises!
