Program Notes

The Concerto for Saxophone Quartet and Wind Ensemble is conceived in two contrasting movements. The first, Liminal, responds to a state of mind: ‘on the threshold’ or ‘floating in-between’ or ‘occupying a position at, or on both sides of, a boundary or threshold.’ There is a state of mind between sleeping and waking when wakefulness begins to slowly enter our sleeping state creating a twilight state of dreams and images before we awaken. The second movement, Tactics, responds to the fully conscious state of mind that is constantly planning ways and means to reach our goals or influence the future.

- Program Note by composer

The Concerto for Saxophone Quartet and Wind Ensemble was written for and is dedicated to the University of Texas at Austin Wind Ensemble and its conductor, Jerry Junkin.
