Quick Overview

The seventh wind quartet was completed in 2002 and is fashioned after a childhood memory of a chaotic and impromptu music experience. "I remembered a children’s birthday party where several sisters, who had taken music lessons, were pushing each other off a piano bench in order to have a brief turn playing easy tunes. This artless ruckus turned out to be an exciting 'performance' despite being unplanned. The girls were laughing, pushing, shoving, struggling, even banging and pounding, while managing to render chopped-up tune fragments from pieces that were popular at the time." The result is a single-movement quartet, where "surrealism is based on non-surrealistic reality." For advanced performers. Dur.: 9'15"
