FIRST PERFORMANCE

June 17, 2008 as part of the Music08 Festival in Cincinnati, OH

 

ENSEMBLE

Horn Quartet

DURATION

6 minutes

PROGRAM NOTE

These miniatures resulted from sketches I wrote for horn quartet in 2008. I treated these movements as stylistic exercises focusing on the darker gloomy sound of the horn rather than the bright and brassy quality of the instrument. To convey the emotions of these sketches, I placed an emoticon above each movement.
