Program Notes

sull'ala (on the wing) is inspired by flight. Some of the different physical properties of flight suggested to me different musical expressions of rhythm, harmony, texture... The relationship of soloist to ensemble reflects the individual flier's relationship to surrounding elements. The murmurations are small bridge movements for the soloist and sax sextet.

A "murmuration" is a group of starlings, whose mesmerizing group acrobatics fill the sky in sweeping clouds.
