Douglas Hedwig: A Certain Slant of Light

…a powerful and dramatic work that makes full use of the colors available for brass quintet, percussion, and organ.

This tour-de-force for brass quintet is an outstanding addition to the brass quintet repertoire. All audiences will be moved by the formidable nature, as well as the interesting programmatic ties.
