Program Notes

This piece was commissioned and written for the Robert Asp 6th Grade Orchestra and premiered in March of 1999, by the composer and conductor Brian Cole.

This piece begins with a slow intro by the orchestra and sax, followed by a slow duet for sax and cello. The fast section is based on a simple rhythm that most younger groups could learn easily, but still enjoyable for the audience. The saxophone part is rather challenging, with lots of running 16ths and a few altissimo notes, not to mention a few funny pops and multiphonics to give the audience a few laughs.
