In Rarefied Air

Solo Alto Saxophone

2017

7'30"

Commissioned and premiered by Katherine Weintraub

In Rarefied Air revolves around a few contrasting thematic ideas, or places. One may imagine traversing an environment where beauty, mystery, excitement, and treachery can exist at the same time. Some places are visited and revisited throughout the piece, each time experienced with a new perspective. Others are encountered once and referenced later only indirectly, as a memory.
